Forrest The Doctors’ Marlborough Riesling 2022 $20-$22
No sooner will your first sip slip down your pipe than you’ll understand why this racy riesling consistently brings home shiny gold medals and 5 star ratings. Boasting lipsmacking green apple goodness and layers of lime sorbet and lemonade, it’s roars in the flavour department, yet whispers seductively in the low-alcohol stakes. A splash of honeysuckle and ripe pear sweetness balances out its crunchy-fresh acidity and its demure 9% alcohol simply adds vibrancy and energy to its zesty finish and florality. No surprises to see why it’s one of New Zealand’s top selling rieslings.
