Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Renegade is a blend of 45% Shiraz, 44% Grenache, 11% Mourvedre that is raised in used oak for 12 months. It has a crisp mulberry and tea leaf bouquet that is well defined. The palate is ripe on the entry with vibrant acidity and an attractive weightlessness. Notes of blackberry, briary and bay leaf furnish the reserved, but fresh, classy finish."

I LOVE this wine! I hadn't thought of a Grenache/Shiraz and must admit I tend to stick with Cabs and Zins. This is really very good - smooth, peppery, well balanced. I want more of it!

Just ordered and love it. Went to order more but now its sold out! Drinking very nicely right now. Will make me look at other Ken Forrester wines. Pepper from the Shiraz, fruit from the Grenache

Learn About Ken Forrester Map ItMap It

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.

Learn About South Africa

South Africa A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on the quality aspect. At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
