2017 Forrest Riesling
Our Kiwi-style Riesling -a delicate off dry wine made in a deliciously juicy fruit driven style. Very pure, citrus/lime and subtle stone-fruit flavours. Intense, concentrated and harmonious with that perfect balance of ripe fruit sweetness, fresh acidity, drying minerality and long long finish. Good today; but better many tomorrows hence.

Drinking well now, but also worth cellaring, the 2017 vintage is light to medium-bodied (10.5 per cent alcohol), with fresh, strong, citrusy flavours, a splash of sweetness (8 grams/litre of residual sugar), and very good depth and harmony.

Distinctive and alluring aromas of Riesling with apple, white apricot, lemon and white peach. Very floral too with white rose and jasmine scents. Crisp, refreshing and just dry on the palate with flavours that reflect the bouquet, high acidity adds crispness and vibrancy across the palate. Drink today and through 2028.
