Ken Forrester Three Halves 2011

Description

Ben’s notes – The name of the wine gives a clue to the man and the sort of wine he makes. A great sense of humour with a serious side would about sum it up. Ken is known as the Chenin King for his FMC and aged Chenins (these will be coming soon). This is a wine made for sharing, having a good time with friends and family. Also, this is a great for Sunday lunch or something as a treat to spoil yourself. A little tip for the summer – plonk in an ice bucket or fridge for 30minutes!

Iconic winemaker Ken Forrester has set his sights firmly on producing a great Mediterranean styled blend from the finest grapes available on the Cape.

A hand-picked selection of the first ripest fruit, taken to the cellar and cool soaked prior to fermentation, then taken to 2nd fill French oak barrels for 18 months.

Mourvèdre (earthy) with a splash of Grenache (fruity) here and a dash of Shiraz (spicy) there was blended by Ken to create this incredible wine. The overriding requirement being that the blend of ‘three halves’ has to be greater than the sum of the parts.
