Forrest ‘The Doctors’ Marlborough Arneis 2014

Arneis from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Apr-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight lemon hues, very pale edged. The nose is fresh with tightly concentrated and firm aromas of white stonefruits along with steely white florals and subtle notes of nuts, herbs and a touch of lanolin. This has very good clarity of expression. Dry to tate and light-medium bodied, the palate features a fine and tight core of mouthwatering white foral and white stonefruit flavours entwined with subtle notes of herbs and lanolin. The wine follows a soft and fine-textured line with crisp, lacy acidity adding energy and drive. The wine leads to a long, taut, dry finish of stonefruits and florals. This is a taut, mouthwatering, dry Arneis with fine textures and acidity. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and with seafood over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the company’s ‘Gibson’s Creek’ vineyard fermented in stainless-steel with 20% in seasoned oak to 12.0% alc. and 2.4 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage. 17.5+/20 Apr 2016 RRP $23.00
