Tasting Notes

"From vineyards close to the winery, stony soils, inspired by John’s two years in the Loire. Made in 1,000-litre oak foudres from Germany and very old barriques for part of this blend. There is some herbaceous character, some elderflower, but it is tempered and restrained, cool leafy thyme herbs. Super sweet fruit, a lovely nectarine and peach touching on mango, with sheer acidity. Excellent."

The Producer

Forrest

Dr John William Forrest was born (1955) and bred in Marlborough, New Zealand. A PhD in Neurophysiology decided to become a wine grower and returned to Marlborough in 1988 to establish Forrest Wines alongside his wife Brigid. Lower alcohol and screw cap pioneer, he is known for pushing the boundaries in New Zealand wine.

Just outside of Renwick, in Marlborough, the Forrest family has been crafting wines since the late 1980’s. Returning to family roots and generations of farming in the Marlborough region seemed a natural progression for John and Brigid Forrest. after successful careers in scientific research and medicine.

Fast forward 30 years; many awards and accolades, various labels and vineyards across the country. Forrest is set for generations.
