Ken Forrester Reserve Chenin Blanc
PRODUCER: Ken Forrester represents the true pioneering spirit of the post-apartheid South African wine industry. Drawing on the examples of top Loire whites, he has used his uniquely placed Chenin vines to maximum effect and has single-handedly led a Chenin Blanc quality revolution. As a result these wines have achieved iconic status worldwide.
TASTING NOTE: The nose is of melon and spicy baked apple. On the palate it is layered, with mineral notes, honeycomb and caramel flavours from lees contact. The fruit and delicate oak/vanilla zests combine to form complex, soft flavours with sufficient body to enhance even spicy meals.
