Forrest 'The Valleys' Dry Riesling 2010 Wairau
Fragrant and distinctive with lots of white Spring flower aromas, crisp green apple, pear and honeysuckle. On the palate - dry, crisp, fresh, firm fruity and varietal with apples and pears, urgent acidity with piquant high notes, generous fruit flavours and lengthy youthful finish.86 Points

Forrest 'The Valleys' Dry Riesling 2009 Brancott
Fruity, fresh, lively and familiar with light tropical fruit aromas laced with sweet citrus and white tree fruits. On the palate - crisp, firm and fresh; lots of lemon peel and apple flavours, high acidity, wet stone minerality, light weight and very easy to drink in a just dry style. This wine is still very young and will continue to age and evolve for the next 10+ years.90 Points
