Producer Profile

There are many characters in New Zealand winemaking and one of the largest has to be Duncan Forsyth. Madman or genius, planting vines in the cold of Otago takes some nerve. These vineyards are on the edge of what is possible, the climate is so marginal. With a biodynamic approach and the reassuring chaos of a smallholding full of pigs and chickens Duncan produces wines, especially the exquisite Riesling, that just sing and win praise worldwide proving that we should all take some time to be little bit different.


Soils are fine loess over schist gravels on both sites, cropped at an average of 7t/ha. Harvested mid april at an average brix of 22.


Whole bunch pressed, fermentation in a mixture stainless steel barrels and tanks, using wild yeast and minimal temperature control, aged on gross less for 3 months.

Oak Ageing


Tasting Note

A vibrant nose of apple blossom and orange zest with just a hint of ginger leads to a bracingly fresh palate of apple and lime. With surprising weight and texture, this clean, linear Riesling is a delightful shock to the palate with real purity and eternal finish.

Food Matching

The perfect pairing for some spicy Indian food.
