''The fragrant and flowery, talc and blossom-filled bouquet leads into a leisurely uncoiling palate of lime and lemon, with quite beautiful flavour, mouthfeel and balance.'
97 Points - James Halliday

  • Produced from mature vines in a region originally selected for this variety, Forest Hill’s Block 1 Riesling has gained world-wide recognition and support. The grapes from Block 1 result in wines of outstanding varietal flavours, true to Mount Barker. Fermented with wild yeasts to add palate richness and complexity while softening the vibrant, crisp natural acidity, the Forest Hill Rieslings are enhanced by a long, lingering, often flinty finish, ensuring wonderful graceful ageing.

    TASTING NOTES

    Bright straw with green hues. There are lifted aromas of jasmine, lime blossom and sea spray. The palate displays citrus zest, fresh lime, grapefruit and slate. Natural acidity drives the long mineral palate and as always typical Block 1 chalky texture.

  • REVIEWS

    'The fragrant and flowery, talc and blossom-filled bouquet leads into a leisurely uncoiling palate of lime and lemon, with quite beautiful flavour, mouthfeel and balance. From the oldest riesling vines in WA. Still developing at a leisurely pace, and better than it was when first tasted in Mar '13.'
