Ken Forrester Petit Chenin 2017 (1x75cl)

Without the efforts of men like Ken Forrester, South African Chenin Blanc might be scarcely more than a footnote to the country’s recent winemaking history – a workhorse grape responsible for vast amounts of forgettably bland white wine. But this Zambia-born former restaurateur saw beyond the grape’s obvious quaffability, placing it firmly at the centre of his resurrection of the historic Scholtzenhof farm on the slopes of Stellenbosch’s Helderberg mountain in the early 1990s. Twenty years on, Ken is known as ‘Mr Chenin’. When not revolutionising the South African wine industry, Ken remains a staunch family man, also surrounded by a veritable menagerie of several dogs, horses, stable cats, geese, owls and guineafowl. 

This is a youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavours.  There is real freshness showing on the palate with crunchy green apple and grapefruit flavours. Good mouthfeel and appetisingly tangy finish.

Goes well with lighter foods such as salads or chicken and fish.

Ageing Potential - Should last half an hour with the cap off and reach for the next bottle!
