‘Ken Forrester has always argued that Cape Chenin Blanc can develop in bottle and this re-released example proves his point. Honeyed and intense, with toasty, honeysuckle flavours and aromas and the freshness that’s the variety’s hallmark. 2018-22’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 94/100

‘The 2007 Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc comes from a parcel of 100 cases that Ken Forrester kept back. It still has freshness on the nose, offering lanolin, beeswax and just a hint of turpentine - quite Germanic in a way, like a mature Rheingau. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity that counterbalances the honeyed fruit laced with light petrol notes on the finish. This has held up extremely well. Drinking window: 2019 - 2025’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100

‘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.’ – Ken Forrester Wines
