Ken Forrester VineyardsOld Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2021
Showcasing an enchanting golden sparkle in the glass that hint at the richly appointed aromas that follow, the Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc from Ken Forrester Vineyards is a generously rewarding, full-bodied wine. The bouquet presents pronounced aromas of spicy baked apple and melon that complement the unfolding flavour profile of the palate. Decadent layers of honeycomb and caramel perform with delicious intensity on a rich palate that is studded with intriguing mineral facets. Delicate oak and vanilla characters reveal themselves on the mid-palate, adding depth and pleasing weight to the wine.
