Forrest Wines The Doctors’ Riesling 2019
Fresh strawberries and ripe red cherry, with just a hint of aromatic herbs like sage and thyme.
Just outside of Renwick, in Marlborough, the Forrest family has been crafting wines since the late 1980’s. Returning to family roots and generations of farming in the Marlborough region seemed a natural progression for John and Brigid Forrest, after successful careers in scientific research and medicine. Fast forward 30 years; many awards and accolades, various labels and vineyards across the country. Forrest is set for generations. Forrest practice what they preach. They don’t believe in using ‘sustainability’ as a buzzword to make them look better — they live and breathe it. From the vineyards, to the processing plant, to the very bottles themselves, every aspect has been considered with sustainability and minimal environmental impact in mind. Wild flowers are used to reduce the use of insecticides, winery waste products are recycled as fertiliser and irrigation water and all cartons and bottles used on site are recycled.
Like biting into a deliciously crisp granny smith apple, licking lime sherbet and apricot, all at once! So easy to drink, with the perfect balance of fruit sweetness and fresh acidity at a modest 9% alcohol.
