Forrest Marlborough Riesling 2012

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Jan-2014
Brilliant light straw colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is light and tightly bound, subdued initially with refined floral and citrus fruit aromas and minerally reduction providing a mouthwatering nature. Dryish to off-dry to taste and light-bodied, the fruit flavours of limes and flinty reduction are shy, revealing nuances of wet stones and toastiness from the beginnings of secondary interest. The mouthfeel is smooth-flowing with slippery acidity, and the palate follows a fine phenolic thread and acid-enlivened line to a mouthwatering, sweet and sour finish. Lemonade, florals and toasty elements blossom and linger. This is a tight, dryish, thirst-quenching and slippery Riesling with a little initial reduction that releases lemon and toasty interest. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from 3 sites in the Wairau Valley, including one in the Brancott Valley, cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 10.8 g/L RS, with TA 7.5 g/L and 2.99 pH. 17.5/20 Jan 2014 RRP $22.00
