2022 Forrest Chardonnay

12 bottles

In stock.

Fruit intensity and flavour complexity are determined in the vineyard; here we exploit known flavour differences between Chardonnay clones and two distinctly different vineyard sites. The Wairau River Valley; gravel rich, free draining and devigourating soil profile and our Southern Valleys vineyard, a very special site with geologically older soils composed of crushed river stones, intermixed with clay.

Color: Straw-yellow in colour.

Nose: Aromas of lemon, peach, oat biscuit, toffee apple, and toasted almonds.

Palate: Freshly ground spice and subtle nutty oak lead to a rich, weighty palate, balanced with a seamless acidity, ensuring longevity.

RRP: $480.00

Bottle RRP: $40.00

93 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)

The juice here, from both the Wairau River Valley and the Southern Valleys vineyard in Marlborough, was split between new and older oak barriques, with high solids for ferment and malolactic fermentation, before a ten-month period of maturation. Even from ground zero for the world’s great Savvys (okay, the Loire might have a say in this), for me, this is yet more confirmation that New Zealand’s top white is Chardonnay. A gleaming yellow, the nose is beautifully fragrant with notes of lemons, cashews, figs, quality oak, white peaches and citrus. Excellent balance and very good focus, a linear style. The palate sees a hint of oatmeal emerge, along with mandarin notes. A lingering finish, enjoy this over the next four to six years.

91 pts - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

Light yellow colour, grapefruit, lightly toasted cashew nut aroma, butter shortbread and croissant; good intensity and richness, allied with some refinement. A smart, up-front chardonnay.
