From the "King of Chenin' Ken Forrester FMC Chenin Blanc, this flagship wine is rich, seductive, and very sophisticated. Layer upon layer of candied lemon, dried apricot and vanilla, with a touch of honey and spice, effortlessly supported by gentle oak, and a lovely freshness. This wine is still showing the exuberance and nerviness of youth, and will develop and blossom even more over the next few years.

Our Expert Food Recommendation

This would pair perfectly with some Mauritian Sea Bass, golden crab cannelloni or even a roast chicken.
