2016 Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc

Description

If you want to experience why Chenin Blanc is the number one white grape in South Africa, Ken Forrester's Old Vine Chenin is the place to start. A combination of barrel and tank fermented juice, off 35-year-old vineyards yielding only 4 to 6 tonnes of concentrated fruit off every hectare.

Smells

Delicate florals, baked apple, caramel, peach and pear.

Tastes

Rich and creamy with caramel lees influence and spicy French Oak, with a dry, chalky minerality. The balance between old vine fruit and winemaking is exceptional here and we can expect this wine to become even more complex over the next 10 years. A class act that every Kiwi wine drinker should experience - watch out NZ whites... "hier kom die Bokke!"
