Our range of top quality wines has received massive national and international acclaim with literally hundreds of awards and accolades over the last 16 years and are broadly available in well-reputed restaurants and exported to 14 countries around the globe.

  • Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch Reserve 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I really want to like this one more, while being full of juicy tropical fruit and a medium body--like a fuller Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand-- but the alcohol is way to prominent and combines with the fruit to be a little too off-putting. Read More
