2012 John Forrest Collection Dry Riesling


I love Riesling. Marlborough is a naturalåÊhome for this queen of cool climate grapes,åÊwith its long, temperate growing season andåÊmyriad of stony soils. In 25 years of makingåÊRiesling in this region I have explored manyåÊvineyard sites and found two which stand out.åÊThis wine comes from theåÊWairau River stony and youngåÊsoils and produces a Riesling of great intensityåÊand delicacy, fine minerality and citrus fruits.
