  • Beautiful spot and home of the Forrest Estate Grape Ride aka Cycle Race. Awesome selection of wine too.
  • The Doctors' whites (Sauvignon Blanc 2013, Riesling 2012) are fantastic (5/5). The Beth bubbly is quite interesting. Very nice Petit Manseng 2013. The Tatty Bogler Otago Pinot Noir 2010 was terrible - quite possibly corked (1/5). The John Forrest Collection Southern Valleys Brancott Pinot Noir 2010 feels very young: high tanins, leathery (3/5). Lovely, relaxing garden.
