John and Brigid Forrest have been quietly making themselves into the foremost private estate in the famous Marlborough region of NZ. Their extensive vineyards are to be found in the valley's prime locations and this gives them the ability to make wine to a consistently high standard. Not content with producing wines from just the one region they have aquired land to the south in Otago and in the Hawkes Bay region in the North Island. Their Chardonnay is delicately aged in oak which give a subtle toasty character and long finish while the wine retains freshness and acidity that comes with the Marlborough regions cooler climate. A perfect balance, rich flavours of buttery pastry and ripe stone fruit with a hint of nutmeg.
