The 2015 vintage was awarded 95 points and Outstanding status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their August 2018 edition expert review of South African old-vine Chenin Blanc (see blue link below). Pretty much every other vintage of the FMC has done similarly!

Ken Forrester The FMC Chenin 2018 - fiche technique
The pinnacle of what Ken considers to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal, an icon Chenin and a challenge to the world! Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla and honey. Will gain additional complexity with cellaring.
Residual sugar = 7.6 g/litre, so on the margin between dry and off-dry; The FMC always is!
We at Exel like this because it's amazing. Full stop, period, end of. See also our Ken Forrester tasting blog for details of this wine in action.
ABV = 13.0%.
