“From one of New Zealand’s finest producers, this is about as good as Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc gets.”
A rave review from top wine writer Huon Hooke for Dr. John Forrest’s regular Sauvignon Blanc. Just imagine what that thirsty critic would say given a taste of this even rarer release.
Field of Stones is a special cuvée that John crafts from a prized, single-acre vineyard that's home to the oldest vines and stoniest soils on his estate. It's considered one of the best vineyards in all of Marlborough, as this particularly stony patch of land along the Wairau River lends a distinct mineral edge to the wine that's reminiscent of fine Sancerre (the most famous Sauvignon Blanc in France's Loire Valley).
Last vintage it scored a gold medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition – now the 2016 is out to impress ...
Look for tantalizing aromas of freshly cut grass, gooseberry, pineapple and lychee – deliciously crisp yet brimful of zesty tropical fruits. Then comes that attractive mineral streak that takes this to the next level. This is serious Marlborough Sauvignon and a highly recommended aperitif.
