In 1988, Doctors John and Brigid Forrest decided to leave their careers in medicine and molecular biology, and turn their hands to wine. They wanted to use their scientific knowledge to create lower-alcohol styles that still had maximum flavour. And they've certainly succeeded. Theirs was one of the first family-run wineries in Marlborough, and today their daughter Beth has taken the reins. Following in her parents' footsteps, she uses innovative techniques to grow grapes that are naturally lower in sugar, resulting in less alcohol being produced during fermentation. This Riesling makes the most of Marlborough's cool-yet-sunny climate, which gives the grapes plenty of vibrant flavour. Discover crisp notes of apple, lemon sherbet and apricot, with a mouth-watering acidity. Its fresh, citrusy character makes it a perfect match for fish dishes – or, as Beth recommends, try it with coq au vin and buttery mashed potato.

All we ask for is a £1-per-glass deposit, payable in advance when adding glasses to your order.
When the glasses are returned to us clean and ready for re-use, the deposit is fully refunded– all you pay for is breakages.
And since you have paid a deposit, there's no time limit in which you have to return them.
To request glasses when you order online, simply place your order online, then contact your local store, quoting your order number.

Lovely balance of dried apricots with some minerality and crisp finish - a winner in our house

The description given suggests a wine at least somewhat dry, but this is so sweet we poured it out.  More like elderflower cordial.  Would not buy again.

Sorry, I found this disgusting. Overly sweet and floral and a step back in Reisling developments. Took me back to Reislings of 20/30 years ago.

Such a lovely Riesling-off dry with plenty of stone fruit and a nice mineral finish. Delicious!
