Winemaker Notes

A youthful fresh Bordeaux-styled blend showing ripe mulberries and plums with spicy, cigar box, undertones. Very accessible with smooth and balanced tannins.

All hand harvested to ensure a thorough quality cellar selection. Carefully blended to achieve a soft, rich fruit driven wine.

The perfect all rounder and a must for every wine enthusiast. Enjoy this wine with your favourite dish, grilled meat and friends!

Blend: 58% Cabernet Sauvignon 42% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of 65% Cabernet and 35% Merlot, the marvelous 2010 Petit Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot has a herbaceous, Cru Bourgeois-like nose but is fresh, well defined and full of energy. The palate is vibrant on the entry and embraces Old World freshness and vitality better than most Bordeaux! It has a delicious, crisp peppery fruit with a touch of cedar and graphite on the well-defined finish. The only thing "Petit" about this superb wine is the price. Drink now-2014.

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.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
