About Ken Forrester Wines
The farm occupied by the Forrester family dates back to the 17th century, but was in a state of disrepair when Ken and his family arrived in 1993. Today, Forrester makes a rich and complex Chenin, with notes of vanilla and honey, as well as an opulent, tropical-fruity late-harvest wine.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2009
($15) Medium yellow. Cool aromas of menthol, minerals, crushed stone and underripe pineapple, plus a sweaty hint that reminded me of a Loire Valley example. Broad, rich and minerally but youthfully dumb today, with its fruit currently hidden by resin and stone. A very serious chenin with an enticing sweet touch that should work well at the dinner table. I'd wait until the summer to pop a bottle.
