Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"The wines from the Collection are only made in the best vintages and 2013 from this vineyard was no exception producing stunning fruit. Dark crimson in colour; the wine has a heady nose of dried herbs, cigar box, mocha, liquorice and cedar. The palate unfolds with a complex array of cassis, black fruits, tobacco, cedar, leather finishing with a gamey, earthiness and a lashing of pencil shavings. The wine is perfectly balanced with a big mouthfeel and tannins that are in no way harsh, but instead express the signature silky dry finish of all the reds from one of this wine regions greatest single vineyards"
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Geoff Kelly, March 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"Ruby, carmine and velvet, one of the deepest reds. Bouquet is sensational, not quite as floral as the 2013 Te Mata Coleraine, but even more dramatically cassis-led and aromatic cabernet-dominant Medoc-styled red, though with the faintest hint of pennyroyal. It shows stunning purity and ripeness, and again,  compared with earlier Forrest Collection wines, more restraint in oak handling. Berry dominates totally. Palate adds blackberries-in-the-sun flavours, and now a little more new oak than ideal, giving a wine of fractionally greater richness and ripeness than 2013 Coleraine, but not quite the magic interplay of complex aromas and flavours that Coleraine displays. Both wines are great illustrations of how clearly we can emulate fine Bordeaux, in Hawkes Bay. This wine is just a baby. It will cellar even longer than 2013 Coleraine, 15 – 30  years."
