The Doctors Riesling from Forrest Estate in Marlborough remains a favourite, no doubt helped along by the Gold Medals, Trophies and Five Star Cuisine Ratings that this wine gained over the years. Being downright delicious probably helps a little too! The mix of perfectly balanced sweetness, full flavour and low alcohol (9%) has made this wine one of New Zealand's top selling Rieslings.​
Marlborough Wine Show 2015 (2015 Vintage)
"Nectarine and orange zest aromas leap out of the glass. The palate has sweet juicy fruit but is beautifully balanced by the fresh, citrusy acidity. Flavours last and last – totally delicious and very moreish."
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, August 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​The most successful ‘Doctors’ wine. Pale straw and youthful, this has excellent depth and intensity, with lime juice and florals with honey and the beginnings of secondary toast aromas. Medium-sweet, this is very attractive on palate with soft, fine textures, refined acidity and flavours of limes, honey and toast that linger. Showing some development, but will keep 4-5 years easily. One of the driest under this label, at 9.0% alc., 28 g/L RS, TA 9.15 g/L and pH 2.79"

NZIWS Judges (2016 Vintage)
"Gorgeously aromatic, light, refreshing 9% alcohol style with tropical fruit sherbet, apple, orange zest and honeysuckle and a delectable, long-lasting, deliciously fruity finish."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2016 Vintage)
"Distinctive riesling with a relatively low (9% vol.) alcohol that has earned many accolades since first release a few years ago. It’s delicate and deliciously tangy with a very pleasing sweet-and-sour tension and ethereal texture. Flavours are a mix of riper tree fruit, apricot, apple and citrus, lime and grapefruit."
