2013 Forrest Riesling


I call this wine my classic Kiwi style Riesling -a delicate dry/medium wine made in a deliciously juicy fruit style. Very pure, citrus/lime and subtle stone fruit flavours; together with that Wairau river valley terroir wet stone minerality. Intense, concentrated and harmonious with that perfect balance of ripe fruit sweetness, fresh acidity, tart drying minerality and long long finish. Good today; but better many tomorrows hence.
