About

The Mac Forbes Rieslings are built little differently to the average Australian Riesling.

Where most producers now-a-days look for bone dry Riesling as their style staple, Mac isn’t afraid of a little residual sugar. For him, it’s all about getting finding the best balance for each wine, and with the tight granite soils of Strathboogie giving the fruit an intense minerality, Mac feels a touch of R/S puts this nicely back in balance.

This is not quite an ‘off-dry’ style, the 13 grams of sugar that remains just gives a lovely fruit weight to the palate whilst maintaining freshness. It’s long, fine and full flavoured, something approachable now but that will definitely do well with some time in the cellar.

What It Tastes Like

Apple blossom, and honeysuckle notes mingle with sweet lime juice and zest characters for a scent that tickles the senses. There’s a stretchy feel to the fruit, is seems to expand and contract in the mouth. All tangerine, lime and sweet spice characters. Balance and precision. Delightful.
