New Zealand Riesling Challenge ‘John Forrest’ Waipara Riesling 2010

Riesling from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 27-Nov-2017
A gentle and ethereal wine with exotic and honied notes on the nose, and also gentle on the palate with subtly lifted fruit and soft, integrated acidity. Medium Dry and 12.0% alc. John Forrest is at Forrest Wines. 18.0/20 Nov 2017 This has a firm, tight nose with savoury, flinty elements to the white stonefruits and citrus. Off-dry to taste, this had gentle, but exotically nuanced flavours of citrus and tropical fruits, good weight and soft, fine textures, the finish a little sugary. 'Medium-Dry' on the IRF scale and 12.0% alc. John Forrest is from Forrest Estate in Marlborough.  16.5+/20 Mar 2011
