Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

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 flavors. Bursts with dried apricots and pineapple, with a hint of vanilla and some typical Chenin honey notes on the long lasting finish

Ken Forrester's 'Petit' range offers friendly value wines, perfect for everyday drinking.The grapes for Petit Chenin are harvested early in order to maintain a bright, fresh, fruity character. This youthful wine displays clean, mouth- watering flavors of crisp green apple, quince and pear, with notes of honeysuckle and ripe melon.

Tasting Notes:

A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavours. Earlier picked freshness shows on palate with crunchy green apple and grapefruit flavours. Good mouthfeel and appetisingly tangy finish. Style: Fresh and Fruity

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 flavors. Bursts with dried apricots and pineapple, with a hint of vanilla and some typical Chenin honey notes on the long lasting finish
