Argued by many to be the Cape’s top Chenin Blanc. A rich, toasty, deliciously fresh white from ultra low-yielding old bush vines. Barrel fermented and aged, this wine has biscuity, toasty flavours, and great acidity which gives a freshness and depth and just a hint of sweetness on the finish.

About Ken Forrester The FMC Chenin Blanc

Expert Reviews

Reviewed by David Williams, The Observer
Product reviewed: Ken Forrester FMC Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch

With its deep and inviting mix of honeyed apples, honeysuckle, acacia and honeyed almonds, this rich chenin blanc has long been one of the country's best wines, and is a match for many a starrier name.

Product reviewed: Ken Forrester FMC Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch

Sourced from Chenin Blanc vines planted in 1967, with natural wild yeast fermentation, and raised in about 85% new oak, the flagship FMC has a beautifully defined, intoxicating bouquet with lemon curd, frangipane, almond and just a touch of nutmeg. The palate has a rounded, waxy texture with wonderful harmony and precision. There are subtle flavours of dried apricot, brioche, vanilla, a touch of honey (perhaps a little botrytis) and a hint of spice. Seductive, harmonious and very focussed, The FMC is a sublime expression of South African Chenin Blanc. Drink now-2020. 93 out of 100.

There are a lot of very fine South African Chenins around these days, but Ken Forrester's flagship Stellenbosch rendition retains its position near the top of the tree. It's an uncompromisingly rich, weighty and textured white, just off-dry thanks to the addition of a portion of late-harvested, botrytised wine in the final blend, and so impressive with its honeyed apple, honeysuckle, and almonds, and that lovely, crisp, green apple acidity. 93/100

Score: 93/100

Product reviewed: Ken Forrester FMC Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch

Bright gold with green reflections. Somewhat austere nose but all the characters begin to develop then take off. Ripe apricot, honey, fynbos, yeasty notes and fine oak. Floral notes of white flowers and honeysuckle. All repeats in the mouth with deep, rich flavours on a great oak platform. Beautifully balanced. Long , extended finish. Good now but will develop with magnificence over four to six years or more.
