This full-bodied Chenin harmoniously balances ripe fruit with delicate oak nuances. It flaunts a rich, luscious mouthfeel, with flavors of melon and tropical fruit enhanced by complex mineral notes and hints of spice. Extended lees contact imparts an alluring honeycomb character.
"Aged for 12 months in the same oak regime as the regular Chenin Blanc with the fruit picked a little riper, the 2010 Reserve Chenin Blanc has a well-defined bouquet with very well integrated oak and hints of hazelnut and spice. It has a very well balanced palate with powerful citrus fruits laced with lemon curd, orange essence, apricot and brioche that dovetail into a precise finish. This Chenin comes highly recommended, especially for the price. Drink now-2017+

The mouthfeel is full and rich without being overdone thanks to the balanced acidity, while nuances of sweet spice, pie crust and wood-grilled Red Delicious all linger well into the long finish."

And so it was that Ken Forrester Vineyards was established, with a focus on Chenin Blanc production.
