Forrest Marlborough Riesling

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
There is a distinctly Germanic lean to this vibrant, medium-dry Marlborough riesling. Abundant citrus aromas are on show. Grapefruit, lime and lemon show themselves, with a slightly creamy, leesy edge of clotted cream and lemon curd. Some slight sulphide notes in the background, and a palate that shows texture and drive.

This riesling starts out with a distinct savoury nose; they ve given it a Germanic edge, really flinty, and it is showing some development. The palate is rich and full to start, offering ripe citrus fruit flavours, and an easygoing finish.

John Forrest believes Riesling will one day be Marlborough's greatest wine, and his own wine is helping the cause. Grown at three sites, the ripely scented 2004 is fresh and vibrant, with plenty of citrusy, appley, limey flavour in a medium-dry style with crisp, racy acids and a rich finish. The 2005 vintage is scented and vibrantly fruity, with plenty of lemony, appley flavour, slightly sweet (15 grams/litre of residual sugar) and crisp, and good drink-young appeal.

John Forrest believes Riesling will one day be Marlborough's greatest wine, and his own wine is helping the cause. The finely scented 2003 vintage shows good intensity of citrusy flavour, with a distinct splash of sweetness to balance its high acidity. It's drinking well already

John Forrest believes Riesling will one day be Marlborough's greatest wine, and his own wine is helping the cause, although the 2001 is a lesser vintage. Only moderately ripe-tasting, it's a slightly sweet wine with lemon/apple flavours and firm acidity. Full-bodied, it's now developing some toasty, minerally, bottle-aged characters.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
John Forrest believes Riesling will one day lie Marlborough's greatest wine, and his own wine is helping the cause. Drinking well already, the 1998 vintage is a deliciously springy, full-flavoured wine. Freshly scented, it's a medium-bodied style with strong, ripe, citrusy, slightly honied flavours, a touch of sweetness and good acid spine. Brisk and lively, the 1999 is a slightly sweet style with very good depth of appley, gingery flavours.
