Forrest The Doctors' Rose 2016

Forrest The Doctors' Rose 2016 a real beauty..

Tasting Notes

1/22/17
Weighing in at 9.5% alcohol, in spite of its lower alcohol, there is no loss of intensity or depth of flavor. This exhibits lovely aromatics of strawberry, cherry and red apple that offer good vibrancy and lift with a light touch of herb in the background. Medium bodied, the aromatic vibrancy of the nose transfers into the palate which gives the strawberry and red cherry flavors engaging freshness with surprising depth of flavor. There’s nice mid palate fruit sweetness while the finish is dry. This is one of those wines that will win a lot of fans. It goes down so easy that before you know it the bottle is empty. Cheers to the Forrest team for such a lovely wine and just in time for the warmer months in front of us.


Winemaker Notes

The Doctors’ Rose is the latest addition to the range. This wine is crafted from flavoursome Pinot Noir and dry, white aromatic Arneis.
The grapes were picked on the early, cool morning given a few hours cold soak to extract, just that little “pink” from the skins, before being gently pressed.
What an explosion of flavour. Fresh strawberries and ripe red cherry, with just a hint of aromatic herbs -sage/thyme aromas.
The wine is so fresh and lively; simply dancing lightly across your palate to finish crisp and dry.
