2017 RS28 Riesling, Mac Forbes

The RS28 shows astonishing balance. The freshness and brightness mean the 28 grams of residual sugar are barely perceptible. Instead, you have wonderful zesty lime, grapefruit and kiwi, with acidity that dances. This has a gorgeous Mosel Kabinett feel: a truly wonderful Riesling.

2017 RS28 Riesling, Mac Forbes
Mac Forbes

One of Australia’s brightest stars, with five-star approval from James Halliday, Mac Forbes has moved beyond being “one to watch”. He’s a producer to follow keenly. His first taste of winemaking was as a backpacker-cum-grape picker in France. After graduating from the famed winemaking course at the University of Adelaide, he consulted for estates including Penfolds and Niepoort in the Douro. He makes “honest wines that reflect extraordinary sites”, and his plots in Yarra Valley are carefully chosen and cultivated for their potential to produce expressive wines of stunning balance.
