2006 Ken Forrester Stellenbosch Chenin blanc 72+ Points

Terpene aromas, almost like a 2 year old hot climate Riesling, before the Golden delicious apples come to the fore, hints of hay, with baked apples texture, touch flabby, simple aftertaste. Now until 2010

Considering that the Ken Forrester and Martin Meinert duo, can produce a world class Chenin Blanc by means of their FMC, which I considered as the best of the Southern hemisphere and can give Domaine Huet a run for their demi sec Vouvray, this is the complete extreme and opposite, in one word disappointing, it is good for down the road bistro and for everyday home drinking, it over delivers from it's price point but a no no for 4 and 5 stars grading hotels listings, even by the glass.......
