Forrest 2017 and 2016 Gruner Veltliner, 2014 Chardonnay, and John Forrest ‘Collection’ Pinot Noir 2013


John Forrest is one of Marlborough and New Zealand’s consummate winemakers. His ever-thoughtful and scientific approach to making wine also includes a healthy dose of passion and infectious enthusiasm, whether the wines are from his home in Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay, the Waitaki Valley of Central Otago. John doesn’t hold back from trialling new techniques and varieties, and has backed a number of emerging varieties, exploring sites and winemaking styles best suited to them. As a result, the Forrest wines are always of real interest and of high quality. Here, I review the 2017 and 2016 Gruner Veltliners, the 2014 Chardonnay, plus the John Forrest ‘Collection’ Pinot Noir 2013, all based on Marlborough fruit. www.forrest.co.nz
