APRIL 2017 WINES OF THE MONTH

Our new April Wines of the Month come from one of the oldest wineries of South Africa's Stellenbosch region of the West Cape province. Originally granted as Zandberg in 1689, the property has a long and colorful history. In 1993 the Forrester family came to the rescue, restoring the 17th century homestead, replanting the vines and developing wines of quality. In 1994 the first wines were produced under the Ken Forrester label, and soon the award-winning wines were at the forefront of the Chenin Blanc revival. The grapes are sourced from vineyards — some of them more than 30 years old — in the cool Helderberg region of Stellenbosch. The Petit Range is mainly from contracted vineyards that the Forrester family manages from pruning through harvest, specifically sourced to suit a fruit forward profile, to offer soft, market ready, instantly pleasing easy everyday drinking wines.

Ken Forrester "Petit" Cabernet Sauvignon 2013/14
Approximately 60% Cabernet & 40% Merlot
This is a youthful wine, showing fresh ripe mulberries and plums with a lush, spicy undertone. It is all hand harvested, and carefully blended to achieve a soft, fruit driven wine. It's the perfect all-rounder and a must for every wine enthusiast. Enjoy this wine with your favorite dish in the company of friends. $7.99

Ken Forrester "Petit" Chenin Blanc 2016
100% Chenin Blanc
This is another perfect everyday drinking wine. A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavors. The freshness of having been picked early shows on palate with crunchy green apple and grapefruit flavors. Good mouthfeel and appetizingly tangy finish. Serve with all flavorful, light al fresco summertime meals. The Chenin Blanc is fermented cool and bottled early to show the freshest fruit flavors. $7.99
