Felton Road Block 1 Riesling 2010, Bannockburn, New Zealand

Lifted aromas of fresh, ripe apricots, ripe granny smith with a light touch of honey which were immediately pleasing and likeable. Good balance on acidity and sugar here even though it’s a 2010 vintage. The finish, however, was a tad short. But it still made a perfectly wonderful drink on a late Friday night (with a friend who brought me the bottle).

Edited: Found out that there was 65g/l of sugar in the wine. Didn’t think there was so much residual sugar (as anything less than 2g/l is perceived to be “dry” on our olfactory system). But it goes to show that they got the TA/RS levels right!
