Winemaker's Notes:

This elegant Rhone blend (our 10th vintage) displays Old World Style with New World fruit. Hint of Grenaches earthy rusticity and Shirazs noble spice with hints of nutmeg and salty black olive on the finish. Balanced with soft integrated tannins.

Serve with roasts, duckling and full flavored Mediterranean dishes as well as lamb or grilled meat and vegetables.

About Ken Forrester:

In 1993, hospitality industry veteran Ken Forrester and his wife Teresa purchased the historic Scholtzenhof estate, nestled at the base of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch. Originally established in 1689 as Zandberg, the property is one of the oldest wine farms in the Cape. Ken enlisted the help of his winemaker friend Martin Meinert in replanting and revitalizing the vineyards, with an aim to craft a white wine that could rival any in the world! And so it was that Ken Forrester Vineyards was established, with a focus on Chenin Blanc production.
