Bob Campbell MW 93 points. Single vineyard Awatere Valley. “From the Blind River vineyard in the Awatere Valley. A powerful riesling with lime, lemon zest and subtle mineral flavours. Low pH and assertive acidity balances around 23g/l of residual sugar and builds a lovely tension to give a medium-dry finish. An impressive wine that will develop well.” 16/7/2018 93 Points. BC.

The Wine Advocate - Lisa Perotti Brown "Duncan Forsyth is one very inspired and skilled Riesling producer – a fanatic in fact (which is what it takes to makes truly great Riesling in NZ or anywhere for that matter)." Only 87 cases were made from a tiny vineyard in Gibbston, a sub district of Central Otago. It produces some of the most remarkable riesling anywhere in NZ. The Drumlin Riesling gives delicate white pepper and fennel seed notes over a core of fresh pears and peach blossoms plus a touch of herbs.
"The Mount Edward Riesling, My god it's so good it could be JJ Prum." - Ernst Loosen. "Duncan Forsyth is one very inspired and skilled Riesling producer – a fanatic in fact (which is what it takes to makes truly great Riesling in NZ or anywhere for that matter)." LPB Wine Advocate. WA 92 A blend sourced from several subregions, the "New Zealand dry" 2017 Riesling boasts between five and seven grams per liter of residual sugar. Understated peach and lime aromas give way to a medium-bodied palate that's creamy-textured but also intense and briny, with a silky-tactile quality on the finish. Lovely stuff. JC Mar 2018. This Riesling is the...
