In 1993, Ken Forrester purchased the historic Scholtzenhof estate , one of the oldest wine farms in Stellenbosch, South Africa. There valleys of granite, sandstone and alluvial loam soils are warmed during the day by Mediterranean breezes and cooled at night by the Atlantic air of False Bay. With the help of winemaker Martin Meinert he replanted and revitalized the vineyard, focusing on Chenin Blanc production. Chenin Blanc is a diverse grape, producing wines capable of being bone dry to unctuously sweet. However it's vinified, it maintains an ever-present acidity that lends a firmly structured backbone to the flavor profile.
