Ken Forrester Wines

Situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, in the heart of South Africa’s most famous wine region Stellenbosch, Ken Forrester vineyards are commonly referred to as the ‘Home of Chenin Blanc’. The historic farm Scholtzenhof is one of the oldest wine farms in the Western Cape and was originally granted as Zandbergh in 1689, it is now home to Ken Forrester Wines, with their first wines produced in 1994. Over the years their range of top quality wines have received massive national and international acclaim with literally hundreds of awards and accolades. Ken Forrester represents the true pioneering spirit of the post-apartheid South African wine industry. Drawing on the examples of top Loire whites, he has used his uniquely placed Chenin vines to maximum effect and has single-handedly led a Chenin Blanc quality revolution. As a result these wines have achieved iconic status worldwide. At the top end there is the beautifully balanced barrel-fermented Chenin FMC, made from fruit grown at Ken's Stellenbosch vineyard, and the silky fine red The Gypsy, made from low yielding vines. An exciting range of wines from a great winemaker with something to suit every price point and palate. Ken Forrester's philosophy has always been to create a range of handcrafted, individually made wines that suitably compliment a wide variety of food styles. Thus the reason behind producing three Ken Forrester ranges including; The Petit Range - A range of elegant, value for money wines, crafted for everyday drinking and to be opened and enjoyed lightheartedly.  Created with a fruit forward profile that demands a second sip. The Reserve Range - Sourced from older vineyards mainly from the family property in Stellenbosch, just 4 miles from the cool Atlantic and in the sheltered lee of the majestic Helderberg mountain.  The Reserve range of wines, show more depth of character and concentration - ideal food wines, with structure and elegance. The Icon Range - Sourced from single parcel vines, where an older, special vineyard like a small postage stamp on the map, produces exceptional fruit and extremely low yields.  These wines make a statement of purity and show intensity, complex concentration of fruit and elegant balance.  The pinnacle of the range, crafted in small quantities and continually scoring extremely high points across the Parker, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast ratings every year.
