Mac Forbes 2018 RS8 Riesling (Strathbogie Ranges)

This vintage of Mac Forbes's “RS” Riesling, which gets named each year for the level of residual sugar left in the wine, is the driest (and therefore the lowest RS) in several years at 8 g. Pale gold in color, it opens with slightly reductive seashell aromas, balanced by delicate stone fruit, honeycomb and floral notes. In the mouth, the sweetness can be felt, but lightly. What it predominantly adds is a creamy texture. Acidity and fruit are there but not as crisply or brightly as one might hope to see this through the years. Christina Pickard
