Reviews of Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Reserve 2018
- Bursting with flavours of dried apricots, pineapple and hints of vanilla and honey that last long on the finish.
- 100% Chenin Blanc.
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.
