Forrest Lagrein 2020, Marlborough

Lagrein from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-May-2022
Deep, dark purple with a ruby-red core, lighter on edge. This has a grounded, earthy tone, gently releasing aromas of blackberries, plums and savoury nuance. Full-bodied, blackberries and plums aromas intermixed with spice, earthy soil minerals and a hint of game. The fruit has richness and a savoury edge, entwined with powdery tannins, leaving a silky, structured mouthfeel. Juicy acidity lifts the rich flavours and tannins and carries to a long, elegant finish. This Marlborough Lagrein shows concentration, earthy minerals and a silky mouthfeel. Match with lamb koftas and braised veal over the next 5 years. Fruit from Stanley Estate in the Awatere, 13.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) May 2022 RRP $35
