Ken Forrester Petit Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2012
This fresh, approachable Bordeaux blend is crafted in a soft, fruit-driven style. It's packed with rich flavors of ripe blackberries and plums with undertones of cigar box, earth and spice, enhanced by smooth, fine-grained tannins.
In 1993, hospitality industry veteran Ken Forrester and his wife Teresa purchased the historic Scholtzenhof estate, nestled at the base of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch. Originally established in 1689 as Zandberg, the property is one of the oldest wine farms in the Cape. Ken enlisted the help of his winemaker friend Martin Meinert in replanting and revitalizing the vineyards, with an aim to craft a white wine that could rival any in the world! And so it was that Ken Forrester Vineyards was established, with a focus on Chenin Blanc production.
