Ken and Theresa Forrester found this Chenin vineyard (now 35 years old) at Zandberg farm when they purchased it in 1993. The grapes were hand-harvested and strict bunch selection was made in the winery.
Barrel and tank fermented and left on the lees (9 months French oak, 20% new) matured on secondary lees for a rounded complexity.
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.
Can be served with varied spicy dishes, full flavoured fish or chicken dishes. Ideal with crayfish, prawns.A true benchmark for relaxed enjoyment.
