Sancerre in France may be Sauvignon Blanc’s spiritual home, but for modern vibrancy, Marlborough, New Zealand is the new “Sauvignon Central.” And nobody does it better than Dr. John Forrest – a pioneer of the Golden Mile (Marlborough’s original and best vineyard strip).
Here’s top critic Huon Hooke on John’s regular Sauvignon: “From one of New Zealand’s finest producers, this is about as good as Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc gets.” You get to enjoy the exhilarating beauty he makes just for us.
Inspired by the striking ‘stone-walled’ entrance to John’s beautiful estate (built from the Wairau River stones that give Marlborough’s best wines their attractive mineral notes), this white also offers plenty of inspiration in the glass, boasting intense aromas and flavors of ripe passion fruit, refreshing citrus zest and black currant leaf. With a history of gold medal wins (recently at the China Wine and Spirits Competition), it’s a white that’s guaranteed to impress you and your guests.
The perfect partner for a spread of cheeses, fresh fish and sushi, crisp green salads and more. Be warned though: one sip (or bottle) may not be enough.
