expert reviews about
2014 Forest Hill Vineyards Block 1 Great Southern Riesling
James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
The fragrant bouquet is filled with citrus and apple blossom scents leading unto the inexorably intense palate of lime/grapefruit flavours, sustained and lengthened by the full-on minerally grip to the finish.Drink by 2030
Mike Bennie (2014 Vintage) says
Impressive vineyard at Forest Hill. Local winemakers almost speak about it with reverence. Rightly so when you consider who had tended it up to recently, and its age and position. Riesling has seemingly always done well here. Steely, stony scents, shows lift of honeysuckle and concentrated citrus. Dense citrus apple in the palate with lime, slate and chalky racing through. Impressive, penetrating, punchy Riesling of great velocity and drive.2016 - 2030
James Suckling (2014 Vintage) says
The nose here is wonderful with plenty of flinty complexity, preserved lemons, dried citrus rind and just a hint of white pepper. The palate's full yet shows so much verve, cruising through layers of tropical and citrus fruit with fresh acidity and a long, very mineral finish. Drink now or hold and see this develop in bottle.
