A NZ Riesling to look out for!

TN: 2013 Forrest Estate Riesling The Doctors, Marlborough NZ.

A few will remember my enthusiasm for the GV last year so sought out the newly arrived riesling when downtown. Two doctors involved with this estate and I have to say this is a cracker of a wine!

SC, 8.5% alc, $22 Cdn, opened one hour, no sign of gasolein. Very pale straw color with just a hint of green but overall pale. Inviting nose with green apples and lime, day 2 just a hint of some tropical fruits.
Initial entry thought is crisp, pleasing, lime, some mineral tones. Just a tad over off-dry, medium bodied, very nice wine indeed with lingering finish of citrus, apple, melon and “apricot” from across the patio. “Medium sweet” thought our guest. She is a big NZ fan and has mentioned a few times however their rieslings are on the up and up. Too true after tasting this gem.
