2018 Forrest Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the morning, cold settled and cool fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine is left on its lees to develop that textural creamy mid-palate, before being blended with a small oak component and bottled ready for summer.
Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - all passionfruit, grapefruit, elderflower and flowering blooms on the nose.
To taste, tropical fruits - passionfruit and guava, aromatic herbs -lemon thyme and sage with hints of white flowers. It’s full and generous in the mouth, yet crisp, refreshing and dry with just a hint of salty minerality on the finish.
