Forrest Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
This aromatic, vibrantly fruity wine has recently become noticeably drier, while retaining good drinkability. The 2010 vintage, grown in the central Wairau Valley, is a classic sub-regional style, with mouthfilling body and well-ripened, citrusy, herbal flavours, crisp, dry and strong. It shows excellent freshness, harmony and length.

This aromatic, vibrantly fruity wine has recently become noticeably drier, while retaining good drinkability. The 2008 vintage is fleshy, ripe and smooth, with good depth of non-herbaceous, tropical-fruit flavours and a dry (3 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
John Forrest's wine is fresh, fragrant and full-flavoured in a smooth, very easy-drinking style that offers good value. The 2004 vintage is one of the best yet. Fractionally off-dry (4. 5 grams/litre of sugar) in style, it has a punchy bouquet of melons, capsicums and limes, leading into a mouthfilling (14 per cent alcohol), vibrantly fruity palate with excellent weight and intensity. It's a clearly herbaceous, tangy wine with a rounded, lasting finish

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
John Forrest's wine is fresh, fragrant and full-flavoured in a smooth, easy-drinking style that offers good value. Aromatic and full-bodied, with 7 per cent Semillon in the blend, the 2002 vintage is a slightly off-dry (five grams/litre of sugar) style, freshly herbaceous, with melon, capsicum and lime flavours, crisp and lively.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
John Forrest's unwooded Sauvignon Blanc is very fragrant and rich-flavoured, and of sharply rising quality in recent years. The 1998 vintage is one of the top wines of the vintage. A blend of 85 per cent tank-fermented Sauvignon Blanc and 15 per cent barrel-fermented Semillon, it's a freshly scented, mouthfilling, very ripe yet zingy wine with sweet-fruit delights and a touch of complexity. The 1999 is equally impressive - richly fragrant and lively, with excellent depth of ripe melon, lime and green capsicum flavours and good acid spine. Fine value.
