Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2019

Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South AfricaThis South African chenin, sourced from the Helderberg region of Stellenbosch, continues to overdeliver year after year. The 2019 vintage stands out for its remarkable complexity, especially when you consider this is just over $20 per bottle. There's a terrific balance of developing fruit and savoury complexity, with honeyed pear, baked apple, and fresh nectarine accented by wool, oatmeal, and subtle wood. This is fresh, well-balanced, classic chenin. Excellent value, and highly recommended.Tasted: 04 August 2021Tasted by: Prices:
