Serving Suggestions

To best enjoy your white wine, follow these serving suggestions:

  1. Temperature: Serve the wine chilled, ideally between 8-12°C. This temperature enhances the wine's crispness and brings out its fruity flavours.
  2. Glassware: Use a clean, dry glass, preferably one designed for white wines. A Chardonnay or white wine glass is ideal, as its shape enhances the wine's aroma and flavour profile.
  3. Aeration: If desired, pour the wine into a decanter or simply open the bottle a few minutes before serving to let it breathe. This process helps release the wine's full bouquet.
  4. Occasions: Enjoy your white wine at dinner parties, special events, or as a sophisticated reduced-alcohol option for any occasion.

By following these serving suggestions, you can fully appreciate the bright and fruity flavours of your reduced-alcohol white wine.

About Doctors

Doctors' Logo

New Zealand, though a young nation, has consistently been at the forefront of innovation. From groundbreaking atomic discoveries to the thrill of bungy jumping, our forward-thinking spirit has kept us ahead of the curve.

Marlborough wine industry pioneers since 1988, John and Brigid Forrest – both esteemed doctors – have always been driven by the question "what's next?". Their journey began with the successful 2006 vintage Riesling, which paved the way for their innovative Sauvignon Blanc in 2009, and the world's first 9.5% alcohol Rosé and Pinot Noir in 2017.

Their unique blend of scientific expertise, creative passion, and a desire to challenge the status quo has resulted in wines that cater to the evolving needs of modern wine enthusiasts. The Doctors' vision encompasses both the future of wine drinking and the well-being of their customers the day after. Their wines are crafted for socialising and enjoying with friends while maintaining clarity and focus.

The Doctors' range of impeccably structured, full-flavoured, and lower-alcohol lifestyle wines makes no compromises during the winemaking process, ensuring an exceptional wine-drinking experience without the drawbacks of excessive alcohol content.
