The flagship 2011 FMC (which incidentally stands for Forrester Meinert Chenin - Meinert being Ken’s friend and consultant, Martin Meinert) was matured in new French 400-liter barrels with maturation on the lees for 12 months. It has a well-defined bouquet with cut grass and undergrowth aromas that demands some coaxing from the glass. The palate is well-balanced with a crisp, citrus entry. It is quite a linear FMC that does not fan out like previous vintages, although there are pleasant dried apricot and ginger notes furnishing the finish. Biding its time, I suggest allowing this wine 24 months to develop more personality. Drink 2015-2022.
