Professional Wine Reviews for Felton Road Riesling Bannockburn 2014

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Riesling has a great core of lemon / lime aromas with a herbal undercurrent and subtle notes of wet pebbles and white pepper. The light bodied, medium-sweet palate offers rasping acidity to cut through the intense flavors, finishing long and steely.

Additional Information on Felton Road Riesling Bannockburn 2014

Winery: Felton Road

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, and over time, they became the lasting symbol of south Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Whilst the reputation of German wines abroad has in the past been mixed, the Germans themselves take an enormous amount of pride in their wineries, and Riesling grapes have now spread around the globe, growing anywhere with the correct climate in which they can thrive. Riesling grape varietals generally require much cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, and they are generally considered to be a very 'terroir expressive' varietal, meaning that the features and characteristics of the terroir they are grown on comes across in the flavors and aromas in the bottle. It is this important feature which has allowed Riesling wines to be elevated into the category of 'fine' white wines, as the features of the top quality bottles are generally considered to be highly unique and offer much to interest wine enthusiasts.

Region: Central Otago

The beautiful region of Central Otago in southern New Zealand has received plenty of attention over recent years, as it ramped up its tourism industry in order to demonstrate its stunning natural beauty to the world. However, fans of interesting and flavorful New World wines have long been familiar with the region, which is renowned for being the most southerly wine region on earth, situated at forty five degrees south. The vineyards of Central Otago benefit enormously from the micro climate created by the impressive mountains which surround it, which provide hot, dry summers and gorgeously balmy autumns. Alongside this, the region features volcanic soils which provide plenty of nutrition to the Pinot Noir grapes, which make up for seventy percent of the vines grown there.

Country: New Zealand

New Zealand has consistently impressed over the past few decades, with many proclaiming this southern country as being the 'pearl' of the New World wine locations. One of the key attributes of New Zealand wines is their wonderful fruit-forward flavors, which make them a favorite with newcomers to wine, as they manage to be deliciously drinkable without posing many challenges. That isn't to say there is little complexity or interesting features to their wines, as one can easily discover through the fantastic range of wines available – from smoky and mineral rich Sauvignon Blancs, to juicy and plummy Pinot Noirs and the beautiful Bordeaux style wines sourced from the excellent Auckland region. New Zealand wineries clearly have a dedication to quality alongside quantity, and such zeal and expertise is quickly helping them become established as world leaders in regards to both domestic sales and exported wines.
