Forbes & Forbes Single Vineyard Eden Valley Riesling

Colin Forbes doesn’t know quite when riesling was planted in this vineyard just outside Springton in the Eden Valley, but he suspects it was during the 1920s. I’ve always admired this style, and this year it’s set off in racy new livery. It’s skilfully crafted, framing the intensity of 2013 with balance and appeal. A concentrated core of mandarin, grapefruit, locut and golden delicious apple fruit is countered with firm acidity. Best price direct.
