Mac Forbes Strathbogie Ranges Spring Riesling 2015

Regular price $28.00
Utterly delicious. Classic Strathbogie Riesling – floral, texture and a moorish finish.

2015 was simply a gorgeous year to be a vine and as a consequence, the wines are stunning. With consistent rain through winter and spring, we entered the 2015 growing season with a good platform of soil moisture which is always critical. Warm days and moderately cool nights followed into summer which allowed a successful flowering and fruit set meaning yields were up on the disastrous 2014 season (incredibly low yields). Disease pressure was moderately low and as a result most vineyards offered amazing vitality. Early signs of the 2015 vintage are of wines with great energy, precision and structure. Harmony and perfume are also qualities we are associating with all the wines from ’15.
