Tasting Note: 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. Will gain additional complexity with cellaring.

100% Chenin Blanc, bush vines.

"FMC" = Forrester Meinert Chenin

Enjoy with special friends as an exciting aperitif or with spiced dishes, even mild seafood/ shellfish or curries. Great with exotic Eastern spiced foods.

Hand selected – primarily from low yielding, old bush vines (planted in 1974). Harvested at full maturity. Yield: 3 tons per hectare.

Icon Range

We have our single parcel vines, where an older, special vineyard like a small postage stamp on the map, produces exceptional fruit and extremely low yields and here we attempt to make a statement of purity, intensity, complex concentration of fruit and elegant balance. Destined to be limited by provenance and finally after barrel aging we only select the very best individual barrels to go into bottle, ensuring a unique superlative wine, justifiably the pinnacle of our efforts.
