Forrest Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022 $25

Paired with: Annabel Langbein’s Harvest Vegetable Tart with chia oat pastry NZ Herald Canvas Nov 26 2022

Pair this farmers market in a pie with a citrus-stacked, herbaceously hefty white wine like the classic Forrest Sauvignon. Night-harvested grapes sourced from four vineyards located around Renwick in the Wairau Valley were processed in stainless steel tanks to preserve the passionfruit purity and lime layers, then it was left on its yeast lees to create textural creaminess and just the tiniest squeak of oak was used to add extra complexity. Classic sauvignon for summer tarts. And vegetable pastries too.
