Produced by renowned NZ winery Forrest Estate, this is consistently one of JN's most popular Sauvignons. The Forrest family has farmed for generations, but it was not until 1988 that Drs John and Brigid Forrest began winemaking. Their hands-on operation, blending art and science to produce wines of high quality and purity, has given Forrest an enviable international reputation witnessed by numerous awards.
Heart of Stone is sourced from grapes grown in several distinctly different sites within Marlborough in an area where the vines struggle for survival in ancient riverbed stones and gravel. The resultant crop amounts to only a handful of intensely flavoured grapes per vine. This is a vibrant wine with flavours of blackberry, gooseberry and passionfruit underscored by appetising, crisp acidity which produces a refreshing finish. It will partner white fish and salads to perfection.
Marlborough enjoyed a warm, dry summer, resulting in wines with greater concentration of flavour's, when compared to 2015 and indeed 2016. This translates as a more thrilling and vibrant glass of Heart of Stone. Our most popular, now even better.
