Forrest have been producing this Austrian variety since 2010 with great success, but this new 2021 steps it up to a new level. It has richness and freshness combined. Deliciously different.


Winery Notes (2021 Vintage)
"Grüner Veltliner is the Austrian version of White Burgundy. A hugely versatile food wine that loves spice, grease, cream and herbal overloads. It’s a little bit exotic; with hints of lemon, lime, tangerine and peach but always with its defining grapefruit pith and white pepper herbaceous hit.

This is a variety we fell in love with on our travels through Europe and a style we refined while our Winemaker Chris took his yearly holiday to work vintage with the team at Salomon Undhof in Austria.

We use a little bit of old barrel fermentation for the heavier pressings and stainless steel for the fresh, fruity free-run juices. The combo effect gives us the rounded intense exotic nuances of the old world with the fresh, zesty, fruit-driven flavours of Marlborough. It’s Grüner – our way!"


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2021 (2021 Vintage) 
"Superbly structured and finely expressed, the wine shows white flesh peach, rockmelon, lime peel and floral aromas with a hint of white pepper. It's impressively weighted and persistent on the palate, delivering awesome fruit purity backed by racy acidity. Restrained and poised for graceful development. At its best: now to 2030."


4 ½ Stars Yvonne Lorkin, September 2021 (2021 Vintage) 
"Stop, drop and roll immediately to your keyboard and order the Forrest Marlborough Grüner Veltliner 2021 to serve with these souffle’s. It perfectly suits the delicacy of the feta and spinach. This classic Austrian grape has clearly found a happy home with the good folk at Forrest. Perfumed with apple blossom, lemon pith, peach and pepper and packed with refreshing nashi and lime and laced with elderflower, it’s a cleansing, textural, deliciously dry wine with exceptional length of flavour."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
