Newton Forrest Estate is a partnership between Australian viticulturist Bob Newton and Marlborough winemaker John Forrest and was established in 1988 to make wine from Bordeaux varieties grown in the unique soils of the Gimblett Gravels region.

Grapes were planted at the Cornerstone Vineyard on Gimblett Road in 1990 and the first wine, a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Malbec, was produced from the 1994 vintage. Subsequent production has been based on this blend although latter vintages, which reflect the increasing age of the vines, have allowed the production of varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wines.

This wine comes from a private cellar that we purchased in 2023. It has been stored correctly and we can vouch for it's cellar provenance.   
We have no reason to think that this wine will not  be in perfect condition when you open it but, please note that because we were not the original purchaser of this wine, our usual ‘no questions asked’ guarantee does not apply and we are unable to replace or refund your purchase should the wine be faulty in any way.



A change to the licencing laws means we can no longer advertise discounts on our website that show savings of 25% or more off the recommended retail product price. Products on this site will still be as sharply priced as they have always been. We simply can no longer tell you when savings of over 25% are on offer.

Tasting Notes
A distinguished Hawke’s Bay blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec, matured in French and American oak barriques. This is dark, full-bodied and tightly structured, with concentrated, ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, complex and savoury, fine-grained tannins, and a very harmonious finish.
