4 /5

- This wine shows lovely complexity with a mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, peach and nectarine nuances.
- Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.

4/5

My friends loved Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Reserve.
The Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Reserve has a coppery yellow colour . Honeyed aromas. A smoky touch remained in my mouth.
I would not recommend to drink it alone. It's best when paired.
