Forrest Marlborough Riesling 2014

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Apr-2016
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is elegant and refined in presentation with tightly bound, but deep aromas of lime fruit, white florals, toast and minerally wet-stone elements. Off-dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate is soft and finely-textured, carrying harmoniously entwined flavours of limes, white florals, minerals and toast. The wine flows smoothly with integrated, mouthwatering acidity providing gentle energy and tension to the line. Lemon and honeysuckle elements emerge to add interest, and the wine carries to a fine, but taut finish of limes and toast. This is a very fine and soft-textured dryish Riesling with smooth flowing flavours of limes, florals and toast. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian cuisine over the next 4+ years. 70% Wairau River valley fruit, and 30% Southern Valleys fruit given skin and solids contact, as well as lees aging, the wine fermented to 12.0% alc. and 10 g/L RS, TA 7.6 g/L and pH 3.14. 17.5+/20 Apr 2016 RRP $18.99
