FIVE STARS | Bob Campbell MW
Benchmark dry Riesling from one of the safest set of hands in the game. As Bob Campbell MW points out, this wine perfectly balances fresh limey fruits and fresh acidity with the natural juiciness of finely handled Riesling. A masterclass. Utterly irresistible.
Bob Campbell MW writes "The 2019 Felton Road Bannockburn Riesling is a delicately luscious riesling that builds a delicious tension between sweetness and mouth-tingling acidity that helps emphasise the wine’s mandarin, wildflower, lime, citrus and chalky-mineral flavours. I’m guilty of buying earlier vintages in quantity to see how they develop but find the wine so irresistible it’s usually gone within a year of purchase. Fortunately, I have friends who also love Felton Road riesling and have more self-control. The wine is capable of ageing for at least a couple of decades with careful cellaring."
