Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2023

Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2023

R190,00

Golden hued and full bodied, with melon and spicy baked apple aromas. Layered, with mineral notes enhanced by honeycomb and caramel flavours from lees contact. This wine is a great example of the harmonious balance which can be achieved between fruit and delicate oak/vanilla flavours, as they combine to form complex, soft flavours with sufficient body to enhance even spicy and full flavoured meals.
