2020 Forrest Riesling

12 bottles

In stock.

Off-dry and simply delicious! Our pick for serious Riesling connoisseurs. The fruit character of the Southern Valleys is balanced by the minerality of the river gravels, all wrapped up in a dry, crisp acidity. 10+ years of aging potential if you have the self-control but drinking exceptionally well now.

Color: Straw-yellow in colour.

Nose: The nose is soft with lemon, apple and passionfruit.

Palate: The palate is off-dry and medium-bodied with notes of apple, lemon, lime and minerals with good depth. 

RRP: $360.00

Bottle RRP: $30.00

$300.00 for 12 bottles

95 pts - Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

Fabulously elegant and delicate, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, lemon sorbet and white floral notes on the nose, leading to a brilliantly focused and linear palate that's bright and juicy. The wine offering terrific fruit purity and harmony, wonderfully complemented by a hint of sweetness and vibrant acidity. Impressively long and engaging. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2030.

91 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

Forrest from Marlborough has always been well known for their Riesling (probably heresy in that district, but a lovely wine nonetheless). The style is off-dry and like so many Rieslings will benefit from time in the cellar. A cool ferment in stainless steel tanks, this has a pale lemon hue. The nose exhibits appealing notes of garden herbs, citrus and florals. Good focus and a lingering finish here. Soft texture and a fine balance, this is still rather youthful and should continue to drink well for at least the next half dozen years.
