2 x Forrest Sauvignon Blanc 2018
93/100 — Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier
Classic bouquet with a punchy and forward bouquet showing off sweet herbs and green bell-pepper, fresh lychee, apple and passion fruit. Quite floral as well. Dry on the palate with salivating acidity and fruit flavours that match the bouquet. Pungent, savoury, herbaceous and fruity finish - what’s not to like. Drink now and through 2021.
3 x The Doctors' Rose 2020

2 x Forrest Riesling 2018
95/100 — Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier
What a great bouquet of Riesling - citrus peel, especially orange, apricot skin, flowers, apples and a whisper of lime. Fresh and lively on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose, detailed - orange, lemon, apple, lime, a core of mineral wet stone and deliciousness. Just lovely.
3 x Central Pinot Noir 2019 (Central Otago)
Sam Kim | Wine Orbit - 91 points
Sweetly fruited and attractively complex, showing ripe cherry, dried herb, game and toasted nut aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate offering smooth mouthfeel and silky texture. It's beautifully rounded and lingering with an elegant savoury finish. At its best: now to 2024. May 2021.
Candice Chow | Raymond Chan Reviews | 92 points
Deep ruby-black with good transparency, faintly lighter edged. The nose is softly full, aromas of black cherries, blackcurrants and black tea leaves, interweave baking spices and a hint of thyme. Medium-full bodied, aromas of blackcurrants, cherries intermix black tea fragrance, unfolding nutmeg, cinnamon and dark herbs linger on the finish. The wine has a lovely structure supported by lacy acidity and a light fine-grained tannin grip. Black tea fragrance extended the fruit, added interest. Match with smoked duck and wild boar over the next 5 years. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) May 2021

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.
