Gourmet Traveller 95/100
Reasonably concentrated and moderately sweet riesling with fine, juicy acidity adding exquisite tension and energy. In addition to the chalky mineral character it has lime and rose petal/orange blossom flavours.
Trademark apricot notes but a sweeter style. The persistent fruit gives a finish as long as Felton Road's dry version, but broader - like a glass of apricot patisserie.
Tyson Stelzer 94/100
This label represents more than two-thirds of Felton's riesling production and 2013 is a particularly generous edition. Layers of white peach, mandarin peel and ginger presence are streamlined by pretty lemon blossom aromatics and hints of fennel and granny-smith apple. Beautifully fine acidity and mineral structure are intricately balanced by well-gauged sweetness.
Ben Thomas | The Melbourne Weekly Review *****/*****
Everyone knwos about Felton's Road's pinot noir, but this riesling deservates attention, too. Bright and floral, with a bouquet of bath salts, lemon and tropical fruit characters. There's no aromatic hint of the residual sugar that awaits - 56 grams per litre - until it hits the sugar receptors on the tip of the tongue. The superb balance deletes any over-sweet memory. Grippy, smooth and with a lemon acid line, there 's refereshment as well as luxury texture from the high sugar levels. Food match \ Munster cheese
Ripe and smooth, with bright and pure pear, apricot and peach flavors, presenting succulent acidity, medium body and a very spicy finish. 1,029 cases made.
