The Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc lives up to its grape variety’s name. Not for nothing, Ken Forrester is called the ‘Master of Chenin Blanc’ –he impressively proves that with this great wine. Golden hued and full bodied, with melon and spicy baked apple aromas. Layered, with mineral notes enhanced by honeycomb and caramel flavours from lees contact. This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavours, as they combine to form complex, soft flavours with sufficient body to enhance even spicy and full flavoured meals.
A perfect partner for light dishes and salads. Whether fish, lobster, shrimps or mussels – this wine from South Africa always offers the highest drinking pleasure.
Ken Forrester Vineyards, the “home of Chenin Blanc” as it is commonly referred to, is situated at the foothills of the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. Ken's passion for Chenin Blanc is clear, with eight Chenin Blanc wines in his portfolio, made in various styles and available at various price points, he boasts the broadest selection of award-winning Chenin Blancs from any South African producer.
After the harvest, the Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc matured in stainless steel containers as well as barriques from France. Gourmets highly enjoy it right away, but it can spend some years in the cellar, where it will keep its impressively refreshing character.
