Forrest ‘The Doctors’ Riesling 2011 Marlborough 8.5%
N: Lemon, lime, grapefruit and crisp green apple aromas followed by a hard stone – greywacke soil suggestion; a touch of lemon icing and lemonade ice-block extend an invitation to taste.
P: Off-dry with noticeable residual sugar, immediately balanced by high acidity. The see-saw-ing effects of both highlight the citrus flowers and fresh appeal, and also the stony mineral suggestions.
A delightful wine with an apricot note right at the end. Beautifully balanced.
