Product Description

The 2016 Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc is an extraordinary estate Chenin from the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. Grape vines have been planted on this property since 1694. This is a full-bodied wine with melon and spicy baked apple aromas. It's layered on the palate, with mineral notes enhanced by honeycomb and caramel flavors from lees contact. This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavors, as they combine to form complex, soft flavors with sufficient body to enhance even spicy and full flavored meals. Can be served with a variety of spicy dishes, full-flavored fish, or chicken dishes. Ideal with crayfish or prawns.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Chenin Blanc
Appellation: Stellenbosch WO
Aging: Barrel and tank fermented, then left on the lees for 9 months in French oak, 20% new

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc actually comes from 35-year-old vines and is partially barrel fermented. It has a very refined bouquet, touches of white peach, apricot and walnut, a hint of smoke emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with melon, grapefruit, saline notes with fine depth and slightly chalky on the finish."
