Forrest ‘The Doctors’ Marlborough Riesling 2011

Riesling from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Dec-2011
One of the highly regarded of the Mosel Kabinett style Rieslings in New Zealand. Fruit from the ‘Conders Bend' site, hand-picked and cool-fermented to 8.5% alc. and 42 g/L rs. Brilliant, very pale straw-yellow colour with pale green hues, this has a delicate and refined nose of limes, jasmine florals and honeysuckle that unfolds in the glass. Medium sweet, this is a light-bodied wine with good concentration of tantalising flavours of lime juice, white florals and honey forming a good core and palate line. The acidity is discreet, resulting in a finely textured, subtly dry mouthfeel and a driven, linear and direct finish with lingering floral and mineral notes. Still youthful and primary, this should soften to become richer and more nuanced over the next 4-5 years. Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine 4,000 cases made. 18.0-/20 Dec 2011 RRP $22.00
