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 - April 2009
Pale yellow. Complex aromas of pear, stone fruits, pineapple, spices and pepper, plus a whiff of curry powder. Juicy, fresh and penetrating, with lovely fruit flavors enlivened by minerality, which also gives firmness to the finish. Ken Forrester is now farming his estate vineyards organically. Seventy percent of this wine was aged and fermented in barriques, 20% of which were new, but the wine's material wears the oak component lightly.
