Forrest Sauvignon Blanc 2018
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.
Winemaker’s Vintage Report Vintage 2018 proved the age old adage that no two vintages are ever the same! It was a challenging year, especially from veraison (early February) to harvest (late March) due to unseasonable heavy and warm rain events. Spring growth conditions were excellent, early December flowering conditions ideal and summer balmy – all looked set for a cracking vintage; maybe 7-10 days early – but that’s not a bad thing. However the change in weather from February had us on our toes watching for botrytis infection and praying to the weather gods for a break in the rain….
