4 ½ Stars 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Lovely golden hue, with a punch of quince & melon fruit along with honey hint, vanilla & florals. Silky mouthfeel & a pithy grapefruit finish. 19 (92 pts) from 1974 vines, tank/barrel fermented, then 9 months on lees in French oak, 20% new.

91 pts Tim Atkin MW 2020

Ken Forrester knows how to deliver plenty of flavour in a glass of Chenin Blanc. This is stylishly wooded in 20% new barrels, has peach, honey and nectarine flavours, a hint of lanolin and the freshness and focus that almost come with the territory in this area of Stellenbosch. 2021-25.


Winemaker Notes

Golden hued and full bodied, with melon and spicy baked apple aromas. Layered, with mineral notes enhanced by honeycomb and caramel flavours from the lees contact.
