“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 regularSauvignon 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).
With its international gold-medal pedigree (previous vintages have scored gold medals at the lkes of the San Francisco International Wine Competition), the 2017 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.
