2015 Forrest Sauvignon Blanc

Type

This Sauvignon Blanc was drawn from 4 vineyards located around Renwick in the Wairau River Valley. Whilst all have their own characteristics, they share in common a Wairau River gravelly, free draining and devigourating soil profile. This classical Marlborough terroir is critical in achieving the smaller berries and lower cropping levels needed to produce premium Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

Vibrant, punchy nose of Guava, lime, citrus, herbs with a hint of passionfruit and a complex amalgam of subtle yeast esters and white flower. The palate is full with excellent texture and flavours of Guava and boxwood; taut with a firm mineral backbone, finishing dry with crisp acidity. This wine has been created to flourish with time, peak drinkability 3 to 5 years.
