Ken Forrester – Long live Chenin Blanc
Ken Forrester has made the grape variety Chenin Blanc to his forte. And his wines out of it are a true pleasure for all senses. The estate offers the right wine for almost everyone in its three different collections. The Petit Range impresses with especially intense fruit aromas and notes. Gourmets can serve these wines to almost every occasion. The Ken Forrester Range offers a pleasant elegance and an unbelievable complexity in the bouquet as well as taste. The third and last collection is the Icon Range as it stands for ultimate premium quality. Especially the Forrester Meinert Chenin, FMC in short, is the flagship of Ken Forrester. Not for nothing, the estate is therefore known as the ‘Home of Chenin’ in the South African wine industry. Yet also the wines from the other noble grapes offer a great taste experience.
