Mac Forbes RS22 Riesling 2020
RS22 = 22grams of Residual Sugar per Litre. Great to be had on a hot day or with something with a bit of spice/heat.
'This years first pick from our original Riesling vineyard, the RS22 has a long life ahead of it. Fermented and matured in a combination of large and small old oak, this RS has bracing acidity and grippy phenolics, with just enough sweetness to temper such a powerful Riesling.
Don't be fooled by the higher RS. Our first picked Riesling (harvested early March) wowed us with vibrant acidity and crunchy skins packed with mouth-watering phenolics. This taught, slightly closed wine has been full of promise from the second we tasted the fruit and is settling in for the long journey.'
