In a nutshell: A fresh, youthful and flavoursome South African Chenin Blanc.
The lowdown: Made by the man often considered Mr Chenin Blanc himself, Ken Forrester. Hand harvested and cool fermented to preserve all the bright flavours.This has a vibrant nose of fresh melon, citrus, peach and apple with a decent weight and a touch of creaminess on the palate. There's plenty of vibrant, youthfruit here and bold acidity balanced by a just a hint of sweetness.
When to drink: While nicely full in the mouth, it makes a great aperitif and is a good match to salads, and delicate fish dishes.
