Situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, in the heart of South Africa's most famous wine region Stellenbosch, Ken Forrester's vineyards are commonly referred to as the home of Chenin Blanc and other premium award-winning wines. Over the years, this range of top quality wines has received massive national and international acclaim with literally hundreds of awards and accolades. The wines are broadly available in reputable restaurants and exported around the globe. Ken Forrester’s philosophy has always been to create a range of handcrafted, individually made wines that suitably complement a wide variety of food styles and provide excellent value.
One of the very first Rhône-style blends in South Africa.
59% Shiraz, 32% Grenache, 9% Mourvèdre.
From duplex soils, fine sandy loam on a clay base and fermented in open tanks with gentle extraction by pumping over and then pressed and racked into second- and third-fill French oak barrels for 18 months. This adds complexity and structure to the soft natural tannins.
