Forrest Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Everything that is good about Marlborough is encapsulated in this range of wines. Fresh, flavourful and pristine with a strong sense of place, these wines express the best, both the grape variety and what the region has to offer.
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is finely presented with intense and deep aromas of passionfruit and minerals, promising to open up with interest and detail. 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.
Serve with salads and vegetables, and Mediterranean fare.
“There’s a hint of passion fruit, guava with white grapefruit aromas and flavors dominating. This is light in body, with a crystalline edge to the palate, giving it a combination of delicacy and austerity that’s appealing on its own.
