Forrest Pinot Gris 2012
Alluring flavours of Royal Gala apple, nashi pear and honeysuckle; with just a hint of citrus blosson and asian spice. All of which carry through onto the palate.

Forrest Chenin Blanc 2011
Dry, crisp and taut wine with balancing fruit sweetness it begs to be cellared or, if it must opened now, enjoyed with roast pork and spiced apple sauce.
Mail order release, our 6th vintage, the vines are now 25 years old
Forrest Riesling 2011
Very pure citrus/lime, subtle stone fruit with mineral flavours. Our 2011 is one of our best examples of this style we have achieved – intense, concentrated and harmonious wine with tort acidity and a long minerally finish.
