Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch Petit 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Perfect every day drinking wine. A youthful wine showing fresh ripe melon with a mellow, round, mild and honeysuckle fruit palate and refreshingly long finish.

Interesting. Just slightly too sweet for my taste, but has a surprising hint of sparkly minerality and herbaceousness that makes it acceptable. Couldn't drink a whole bottle, but would be very nice with some creamy cheeses.

Pretty middle-of-the-road for me. It wasn't bad by any stretch, but I probably won't buy it again.

Barrel fermented, full ripe, rich, full bodied-this wine is a great example of the harmonius 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.

Here is a super quaffable Chenin Blanc for lovers of New Zealand Sauvignon. It's herbal and ripe with the slightest touch of residual sugar. Perhaps the best part is that it's not a wine you've got to think too much about.
