delicate, fragrant  bouquet

delicate, fragrant bouquet

The family-run Forrest estate holds values akin to our own. Sustainability is at their heart of what they do and helps reduce their impact on their stunning local environment. This, and their ability to consistently craft amazing wines, has been key to our longstanding partnership. Forrest estate was one of the first to plant and produce wine in North Otago. Cocooned by mountains on all sides, the Waitaki Valley wine-growing region lies on the southern flanks of the Waitaki River. Grapes are grown on the warm northwest sloping vineyard, which consists of ancient white limestone soils, inter-layered with river gravels. This allows them to truly ripen in this southerly latitude. The resulting wine is fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barriques, giving a new-world nod to the old-world classics.

Description

This limited-edition Chardonnay from Forrest Estate hails from the Waitaki Valley in North Otago, and is really something special. Aged in seasoned French oak barriques, it has a delicate fragrant bouquet of green apple and aromatic herbs, accompanied by nutty, toasted brioche undertones. It will continue to evolve.

How does it taste

A delicate, fragrant bouquet of green apple and aromatic herbs is accompanied by nutty, toasted brioche undertones. It is a powerful, weighty wine with refined citrus flavours and hints of ripe quince. Whilst buttery and creamy on the palate, there is also a strong, chalky, mineral influence, thanks to its riverside origins. Enjoy it with meaty fish dishes in rich sauces, and rich butternut squash dishes.
