Dan Really Likes Wine - For the love of Chenin
We make loads of it, but don't always celebrate it as we should: in 2017, Dan advocates we drink of our fantastic chenin blanc - such as Perdeberg, AA Badenhorst, Bergsig, and Ken Forrester's acclaimed FMC.
Ken Forrester Petit Rosé tasting notes
This very elegant bright salmon pink Rosé overwhelms the nose with aromas of freshly picked strawberries, rose petal and cherry flavours. It follows through on the palate with delicious ripe raspberries with a delicate finish.
Ken Forrester on tasting notes for Petit Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
A youthful wine showing fresh ripe mulberries and plums with a spicy undertone. The perfect all rounder, and a must for every wine enthusiast.
Ken Forrester on tasting notes for Petit Pinotage
Classic Pinotage aromas of spicy mulberries, plum pudding and cherries, supported by smoky bacon nuances. Juicy and accessible with soft palate and delicious fruit concentration.
Tasting notes on Petit Semi Sweet
A decidedly moreish/lekker wine with a powerhouse of flavours the likes of ripe melon, guava and pineapple. The finish is tangy and irresistible with honey notes.
KF Icon The Gypsy
The character is somewhat “wild” a little brambly with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, dark spices, with vanilla scents and a distinct, concentrated red-fruit focus. Great for laying down and keeping for at least ten years but already rewarding if allowed to breathe in a decanter.
Ken Forrester's tasting notes on The FMC
The pinnacle of what we consider to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal - an icon Chenin, a challenge to the world! Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla and honey.
Tasting notes on Ken Forrester Merlot Reserve
Hints of cherries and mint with meat-spice and smoky undertones. Softly rounded and accessible wine with balanced tannins for early drinking.
Ken Forrester's tasting notes on T Noble Late Harvest
This golden wine with fresh, sumptuous peach, dried apricot flavours, overlaid with a tropical lushness of melon and pineapple. Ripe sweetness, yet tangy, with sweet and sour zip flavours like baked apples with clove spice, wood spice and honey on the finish.
Tasting notes on Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc
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.
Tasting notes on Petit Chenin Blanc
A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavours. Should last half an hour with the cap off and reach for the next bottle!
Tasting notes on Petit Sauvignon Blanc
Lovely complexity with mix of tropical fruit, tangy grassy notes, fig leaves & nectarine nuances with crisp dry finish.
Ken Forrester talks about the Icon Range
The Icon Range: Stand alone parcels from single vineyards where we nurture and coax the vines and at harvest we may pass through up to 6 times hand picking and selecting the bunches individually. Destined to be limited by provenance and finally after barrel aging, we only select the very best indivi
