2012 Forrest Chardonnay

Description

Dr John Forrest is married to Dr Brigid Forrest - and he often jokes that she's had to keep working to finance his obsessive and expensive winemaking habits. He certainly hasn't cut any corners here, the wine showing all the low cropping intensity we expect from Forrest wines and as always a degree of textural interest and technical skill that sets it apart from the competition.

Smells

A whiff of toasted nuts, brioche, pineapple and peach, with a nice hint of bottle development starting to emerge and add richness.

Tastes

Ripe and tropical on the palate with classic focused acidity we expect from the Marlborough region. Toasted nuts and creamy lees notes follow the fruit through to a long, satisfying finish of impressive richness. A great deal for Chardonnay lovers, this is a lot of wine for the money and a great match for roast chicken between now and 2019.
