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.
87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2009
($9) Dark red. Exotic fruits, cassis, licorice, cola and a whiff of fresh herbs on the slightly high-toned nose. Then fleshy and pliant in the mouth but a bit disjointed, with the creamy middle showing a slight green aspect and the finish coming off as a bit dry. But this spicy wine should be very useful at the dinner table.
