Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2019

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaThe Forrester Reserve Chenin Blanc is a blend of six vineyards from the Helderberg Mountains of South Africa. A blend of post-fermentation lots sits on its lees for nine months in 20% new French oak. The style is neat and clean, with fresh notes of nectarines and pears. It is all wild fermented, and only 20 percent of the French oak is new. It is a lovely toss to chenin blanc drinkers who prefer the cool, leaner, citrus side. A delicious food-friendly white for all seasons that we enjoyed with halibut.Tasted: 27 June 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 BCLS ON 17.95 LCBO QC 18.00 SAQ Producer: Ken Forrester WinesDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
