Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 90+

I love the chalk and wet slate minerally notes and restrained lemon / lime nuances of Felton Road’s 2015 Dry Riesling. The palate is light-bodied with layers of tangy intensity complimented by savory yeast and mineral notes, finishing with great length and freshness. [28/09/2017]

Vinous 89

(8.5% alcohol with 74 grams of residual sugar): Pale straw-yellow color. Very ripe if restrained aromas of tropical fruits, ripe peach and exotic spices showed a note of candied ginger with air. Fairly sweet peach, nectarine and brown spice flavors are leavened by lively acidity, with the wine’s tactile impression of extract also helping to buffer its residual sugar. Nicely concentrated and long. I wonder what this slightly high-toned fruit bomb would have tasted like with three degrees more alcohol and considerably less residual sweetness. But this is a very sexy drink, with excellent acidity. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2016]
