Forest Hill Riesling is legendary, with a legacy of producing many fantastic vintages in their estate and block series.

The 2021 Block 2 has a Lifted aromas of citrus zest, grapefruit, subtle yellow fruits, and wet stones. The palate is racy and textured from the extended contact on lees with serious intensity.

Block 2 was planted back in 1975 and continues to produce exceptional quality fruit.

         

Fruit from Block 2 in the Forest Hill vineyard, planted in 1975. Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, racked to a combination of stainless steel and oak (one seasoned Austrian demi-muid). Kept on lees until bottling in October. 3g/L RS. Textural, dense and super-long; even without the prior knowledge of residual sugar, it is evident in a little glycerol slick through the finish, perfectly in sync with the plump fruit that precedes it. Similarly, the oak component is invisible, save for the texture in the mouth. This is the complete package – it's a burster. Not only is it awesome now, but this is going to age with interest and grace. Stock up.
