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.
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.
