The FMC isthe finest expression of this varietal, in contrast to some of the more indifferent New World offerings. It is one of South Africa’s iconic wines, made by legendary winemaker, Ken Forrester. Grapes are hand picked from low-yielding, old bush vines dating back to 1974.

The wine is elegant and graceful with rich, layered dried apricots, vanilla and honey. Enjoy as an aperitif or with spiced dishes or a mild curry. This wine is drinking well now and will have more complexity with time.

More Information

Chenin Blanc

Citrussy white wine from fertile valley floors in California and South Africa on the one hand while on the other, Chenin Blanc can be a honeyed elixir in varying degrees of sweetness from small village appellations in the Loire Valley. This is the traditional home of Chenin Blanc, where the mists rising from the Loire in the mornings envelop the vines and induce the onset of the mould Botrytis (noble rot) whose own characters meld with Chenin‘s acacia-and-straw flavours to create wines with complex flavours, bright acidity and outstanding capacity to age. Chenin can range from dry and intensely mineral in appellations like Anjou and Savennières, to lusciously sweet and honeyed.
