Natalie's Score: 91/100

Classic Kiwi Savvy nose here: herbal yes, but not too grassy. Incredibly mouth-watering and juicy with fresh notes of lime, lemon and white grapefruit. Hard to believe the alcohol level is so low with so much flavour here, but yay! Try this with fresh seafood or shellfish to keep the other doctor away ;)

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: salads, seafood, pasta with cream-based sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Looks like water but it's definitely not! Give it a sniff and you'll take in some intense gooseberry, lemon grass, lime/lemon zest notes. Take a sip and enjoy pleasant flavours of mango, lemon zest, pineapple and passion fruit. Enjoy this light bodied dry Sauvignon Blanc with a delicious fennel and asparagus salad topped with a light citrus dressing and shaved parmasean. Tasted May 2016. @sommsosa @bespoketastings
All of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes that went into this New Zealand white wine were grown in vineyards with excellent drainage along the Wairau River. where gravel soils dominate. New Zealand is a cool climate country, but this particular region tends to be even cooler on average so the grapes tend to ripen later than other regions and develop more complex flavours as a results. Pair with fresh halibut or sole. Named after Doctors John and Brigid Forrest, this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc uses new grape clones, alternative winemaking and select parcels of the vineyards for character and complexity. Very aromatic, almost pungent, in the depth of flavour. Racy finish that's crisp and clean. - Community Wine Reviews
