John Forrest’s Sauvignon Blanc is the result of years of refinement. Now produced totally from vineyards located in the gravelly soils of the Wairau plains to give the flavour profile John is seeking – elderflower, lemon thyme, guava, blackcurrant leaf, mineral, dried herbs. This enters the mouth quietly then kind of explodes on the mid-back palate, finishing with a zesty deliciousness that lingers long. 

Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"This Sauvignon Blanc was drawn from 4 vineyards located around Renwick in the Wairau River Valley. Whilst all have their own characteristics, they share in common a Wairau River gravelly, free draining and devigourating soil profile. This classical Marlborough terroir is critical in achieving the smaller berries and lower cropping levels needed to produce premium Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – all passionfruit, grapefruit, elderflower and flowering bloom on the nose. To taste, tropical fruits – passionfruit, guava, aromatic herbs -lemon thyme, sage and hints of white flowers. Its full and generous in the mouth, yet crisp, refreshing and dry, with just a hint of salty minerality on the finish."

Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 vintage is a crisp, medium-bodied wine, freshly herbaceous, with green-apple, lime and capsicum flavours, some riper, tropical-fruit notes, and very good vigour and depth."
