Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2018

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaThe Reserve comes off 39-year-old bush vines from six different vineyards around Stellenbosch. The style is neat and clean, with a lot of intensity of flavour from nectarines, pears and a touch of quinine. It is all wild fermented, and only 20 percent of the French oak it spends 9 months in ageing is new. Fresh, light, bright, and electric, it is a home run for chenin blanc lovers who like their chenin on the cool, medicinal, citrus side. A delicious food-friendly white for all seasons.Tasted: 07 February 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.99 BCLS AB 25.24 p ON 17.95 LCBO QC 19.80 SAQ Producer: Ken Forrester WinesDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
