The nose is brimming with bright red summer fruit and lifted floral notes. The rich palate follows through with dark cherry, raisins and a savory under tone. Impeccably structured, deliciously round and silky.

Wine Searcher: Featured in the article Doctored Leaves the Key to Low Alcohol Wines.

"Tasting this 9.5 percent alcohol wine against Forrest's main Pinot Noir, at 13 percent alcohol, was like tasting old-school Burgundy against California. I liked both. It depends on what you want out of Pinot. This wine is light and pretty, with aromas of raspberry and fresh-cut flowers. Despite the light body, it lingers on the palate for a long finish. Even Burgundy has a hard time making this kind of light and pretty wine now; I chose it over the cherry-driven Forrest Pinot Noir because this wine is much more unique. And I can drink more of it! Win-win."

The Forrest family practically put Marlborough on the map as a wine region. They were one of the first families to plant vineyards back in 1988, and they have continued to earn their esteemed reputation. John and Brigid Forrest, two doctors, are behind the label. It might be their chosen professions as physicians, whose hands are highly prized, that lend a deft touch to stellar winemaking. They oversee 321 acres of vines in the Wairau Valley of Marlborough, managing two of the vineyards while owning seven. Forrest is certified sustainable and vegan friendly.

New Zealand is known for its screwcap closures, and John led the charge, as well as the push to make lighter-alcohol wines. The Forrest family is all about zigging while others zag. That explains why John won the New Zealand “Winemaker of the Year” award by Wine State in 2007, for his enological and viticultural research and experimentation. In 2019, Wine Marlborough bestowed the honor of “Winery of the Year” to Forrest, publicly acknowledging Forrest’s hard work and innovation.

Beth Forrest, John and Brigid’s daughter, graduated from Adelaide University with a master's degree in Oenology and officially joined Forrest in 2015. As general manager and winemaker, she brings a wealth of knowledge, vibrancy and an infectious passion for winemaking. She, along with her parents, continue to innovate and push the needle with wine. Beth is also a leader in her own right, as the first Chairwoman of the Marlborough Wine-Grower’s Association and is involved with several other New Zealand wine industry groups.
