Forrest Marlborough Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Dec-2011
Fruit from two young stone, gravel and silt soiled sites in the Wairau River Valley, and one site on clay-influenced soils in the Brancott Valley. Fermented to 12.0% alc. and 14.3 g/L rs. Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour, very pale on rim. The bouquet is tightly bound with fine aromatics of limes and mandarins, along with hints of herbs and subtle toasty nuances as well as some flinty reduction. Off-dry to taste, the fruit is still to unfold, revealing delicate flavours of citrus fruits and white stonefruits and florals, the palate underlined by firm acidity and a thread of phenolic texture that results in a little austerity. There is good line and the wine finishes with lime and mineral notes. Still youthfully tight, firm and dry, this should develop greater interest over the next 4-5 years. Serve as an aperitif and with shellfish. 17.0+/20 Dec 2011 RRP $22.00
