Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc 2010 Wine Spectator - 87 PointsRobert Parker Rating Aug. 2011 - 87 points
This wine shows complex, ripe fruit with a dry finish. Flinty minerality mixing it up with tropical fruit and a hint of grass aromas on the nose. Exceptional long tropical pineapple, citrus finish which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.
Very good while preparing a meal on the patio. Ideal with fish, chicken and pasta.

About The Harvest
Grapes are hand picked over a progressive ripening curve to capture the natural acidity and show the riper, tropical fruit flavour of Sauvignon Blanc with typical freshness and balance.
