Ken Forrester Reserve Chenin Blanc
Ken Forrester Reserve Chenin Blanc comes from the Western Cape in South Africa. Ken Forrester’s philosophy has always been to create a range of handcrafted, individually made wines that suitably complement a wide variety of food styles and provide excellent value. Ken is known as ‘Mr Chenin’ and wines such as The FMC have elevated South African Chenin to classic status.
Ken Forrester Reserve Chenin Blanc is barrel fermented, full ripe, rich, full bodied – this wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavours. Full bodied and well rounded with a complex structure. Bursting with flavours of dried apricots, pineapple and hints of vanilla and honey that last long on the finish.
While great serve chilled, this wine has sufficient body and structure embrace rich sauce based meals.
