TN: 2018 Forest Hill Vineyard Riesling Highbury Fields

    Very interesting Riesling. It's like it straddles the world between a Riesling and a Chardonnay. There's something slightly tropical about it, and with some tannic notes that edge towards a slight oxidative vibe? Imagine you'd mixed in 5% of an orange skin contact wine. There's a fullness there as well, slightly bigger than Rieslings normally are. A little bit of sweetness at end but very, very dry all things compared. My guess would be 3g/L of sugar. Nice stuff, would buy again. (91 pts.)
