You might want to knock back my enthusiasm by about 50% because I love, love, love the New Zealand sauvignons anyway, and consider the fact that these wines lend themselves very easily to being made in a reduced alcohol format as one of the great gifts of nature. This is a delicious zesty Sauvignon with zesty passionfruit and gooseberry flavours. It’s made by Beth Forrest whose family produce The Doctors sauvignon. It’s a fine, fine wine, and it’s incredibly exciting that it is also just 9.5%. To my taste it is just fractionally not as satisfying as her parents’ The Doctors sauvignon, which comes across as just slightly more rounded, but nevertheless, it is a deliciously fruity wine with that classic sauvignon high acidity that sets the taste buds tingling.

Makers Notes

• A seriously good bottle of Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc that just happens to have a lower ABV% than your average bottle of wine. • At 9.5% this is a good option for those looking to lower their alcohol intake without compromising on flavour and enjoyment. • A wine we are thrilled to finally be able to offer you. It’s been a number of years in the making but well worth the wait. The team at Forrest have been working tirelessly to make lower ABV wines by following more traditional processes in the vineyards and winery, not looking to technology to do the work for them. The biggest problem was getting the balance between the sugar and acid right, especially the sugar. Through meticulous vineyard work and strict temperature control through fermentations they’ve achieved what they set out to do – make naturally lower ABV wines that are wonderfully balanced and deliver top-notch drinking. “Mountain View Sauvignon Blanc pretty much leaps out of the glass once you’ve poured it, with red capsicum, passionfruit and fresh herb notes. I love the fullness of the palate with that crisp refreshing, tropical Marlborough finish. At only 9.5% alcohol it represents ultra-modern drinking.” – Beth Forrest, Winemaker.
