2013 Dry Riesling

A bright and vibrant nose of spring blossom, mandarin and freshly sliced ginger. The palate flows effortlessly from the aromatic introduction with further flavours of pear and tropical fruit. Rich and textural initially, with the crisp acidity driving a long and dry finish. A classic and very quenching dry style of Riesling.

Decanter Magazine, April 2014

Rich, ripe apricot and stone fruit on the nose and palate - this wine is enticingly perfumed and bursting with flavour. Rounded acidity makes for easy drinking. 18.5/20 Points (95/100 Points)

Wine Taste Weekly, Tyson Stelzer, April 2014

Felton reports that it's easier to sell a dry than a sweet Riesling in New Zealand, though this is little more than one-third the production volume of its sweeter "Bannockburn" label. The ripe generosity of 2013 is expressed in grapefruit and orange notes, contrasting pretty lemon blossom, tight acid profile and finely textured, mineral structure. A vintage of excellent length and mouth feel. 93 points.
