Ken Forrester Fmc 750ml 2011      
Sku: 1808526*

The pinnacle of what we consider to be the finest expression of the grapes of this varietal - an icon Chenin, a challenge to the world! Rich, layered with dried apricot, vanilla and honey.

The flagship 2011 FMC (which incidentally stands for Forrester Meinert Chenin Ė Meinert being Kenís 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.
