2 x The Doctors’ Sauvignon Blanc 2018 (RRP $20)
Gold Medal Women's Wine and Spirits Awards | 4.5 Stars Sam Kim, Wine Writer“Bright and delightfully aromatic, the bouquet shows feijoa, kiwifruit, rockmelon and lime zest characters. The palate is equally attractive, displaying lovely fruit intensity and vibrancy, backed by refreshing acidity, leading to a lingering crisp finish.”

2 x The Doctors' Rosé 2018 (RRP $20)
Gold Medal Melbourne Int'l Competition | Gold Medal Women's Wine and Spirits Awards | 4.5 Stars Sam Kim, Wine Writer  “Restrained and delicately fragrant, the bouquet shows cranberry, lemon peel, thyme and floral aromas, followed by a tightly structured palate that is linear and mouth-watering. Elegantly expressed and crisp to the finish.”

2 x Forrest Pinot Noir 2016 (RRP$29)
5 Stars Cuisine Magazine "Fruit, glorious fruit. This wine’s fruit expression impressed the entire panel. Layers of red and dark fruit notes fill the mouth with juicy, joyous brio. Oak is a feature at this early stage, but “it will grow into its oak”

1 x John Forrest Collection The White 2010(RRP$45)
The last bottles ever made of this landmark wine
4 Stars Cuisine Magazine - "Always the innovator, John Forrest was one of the first to bring out a serious blended white. This wine’s make-up changes with the vintage, with this latest edition containing six varieties, including a prominent barrel-fermented chenin blanc component. Pale gold in the glass, it offers toasty lanolin scents, and a layered, complex mouthful, propelled by lively acidity."

2 x John Forrest Collection Waitaki Valley Chardonnay 2012(RRP$45)
"Elegant Chardonnay with a southern hemisphere twist on French Chablis. Fermented and aged in seasoned French oak barrels gives a delicate fragrant bouquet of white flowers and herbs following through to nutty, brioche undertones. A powerful weighty wine with refined citrus flavours, buttery, creamy and toasty on the palate with a strong “chalky” mineral backbone."

1 x John Forrest Collection Waitaki Pinot Gris 2012(RRP$35)
"Alluring pear, stonefruit and spice aromas, interwoven with aromatic herbs and a distinct “chalky” minerality. Complex, concentrated and superbly textured palate framed by fine acidity that leads to a dry savoury finish. Truly exceptional expression of Pinot Gris, aged to perfection."

1 x John Forrest Collection Late Harvest Riesling 2012 (750ml, RRP$35)
5 Stars, Bob Campbell "Lovely concentrated Riesling with honey/honecomb, apricot, floral and citrus flavours. Seductively textured wine with real weight and a lingering finish. A suggestion of botrytis doesn’t in any way mask varietal character. Perfectly balanced wine with obvious sweetness and tangy acidity seamlessly integrated."

Pack 2.0 replaces these wines for:

1 x Forrest Pinot Gris 2014 ($22)
Gold Medal - China Wines and Spirits
4 Stars - The Real Review - Bob Campbell, MW
4 Stars - Cameron Douglas -"Lots of varietal signatures with sweet apple and pear, tree fruit skin and white fleshed stone fruit aromas laced with spice. Dry wine on the palate with medium+ acidity and weight; plenty of fruit flavour balances the texture and with a touch of honey this is a lovely wine that will please many who try."

1 x Forrest Botrytised Riesling 2017 ($29)
4.5 Stars, Top 5 — Cuisine Magazine NZ Sweet Wines Tasting 2018
A wonderfully generous wine with some colourful green elements. Salted caramel and toffee flavours layer over marmalade fruits giving the wine a delightful richness and fruit weight.
