The Forrest Doctors at the Heart of Marlborough

Drs John and Brigid Forrest created in 1988 one of core brands in Marlborough, and today remain totally individual in their winemaking. Although with interests in Hawke's Bay and Otago, Marlborough is home base for the two doctors and is where their hearts are. Forrest Estate makes all the varietals that the region is famous for, and leads in experimenting in styles and varieties. The ‘Forrest Estate' wines are described as ‘quintessentially Marlborough', being seen by the Forrests as being "resh, flavourful and pristine, with a strong sense of place”. The ‘Doctors' range is "all about innovation and excellence” and this is where new varieties, alternative winemaking techniques and select parcels end up. This review covers new and current releases in both of these ranges. www.forrest.co.nz
