South Africa's finest Chenin Blanc. The Guardian, October, 2011: "In a world of big brands, it's easy to forget that wine is about individuals. If a winemaker is passionate about his or her vineyards and the quality of their grapes, their wines tend to be equally expressive. And it's not just expensive wine I'm talking about – if a winemaker has a big personality, it shines right through the range. Take Ken Forrester, a larger-than-life South African winemaker whose top wine, The FMC 2009 Chenin Blanc is often compared to great white burgundy."


Tasting Notes

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! Surely South Africa’s finest Chenin Blanc? It tastes like an Enid Blyton picnic, with lemon posset, gingerbread, baked apples, butterscotch, golden pineapple, oatmeal biscuits and sweet spice. Plush and silky, with lots of rich oak influence and a hint of sweetness on the palate, but still very well focused, elegant and pure. Made from low-yielding Chenin Blanc bush vines, aged in 60% new French oak. Wonderfully opulent and thrilling.
