Valentine’s Day, February 14th, is the honouring of Saint Valentine and the celebration of romance and love. At Ken Forrester, winemaking is a time-honoured art and a relationship of steps that work together through commitment, driven by love, that culminates in the quality wines you have come to trust.
For your Valentine’s Day, look no further than Ken Forrester as the perfect accompaniment to elevate your celebration. The ranges of wines offer a smorgasbord that is guaranteed to capture your flavour of love.
Whether it be light-hearted and fun like the Petit range, driven by soft ripeness and pure expression of the nature of the fruit. This range captures texture and balance, with a beautiful nose, rich and satisfying mouthfeel and a lingering aftertaste that demands a second sip.
Perhaps your love has a level of depth and concentration like the Reserve range. This collection of wines includes older vineyards that capture the rich character of the mature vines with structure and elegance, effortlessly partnering with a romantic meal.
Or maybe your love has a combination of purity and intensity such as the Icon range. These wines come from single parcel vineyards, that have older low-yielding vines which produce exceptional fruit with a complex concentration of fruit. This is the pinnacle of Ken Forrester’s effort and commitment to the romance of winemaking.
Finally, for those with a unique flavour of love, there is the Cellar Exclusives range. These are made from special and limited parcels of vines that offer something surprising such as the two bubbly wines, Sparklehorse and Stained Glass. The Cap Classique, Sparklehorse, is an honouring of the French winemaking tradition and South African history of this style of bubbly wine. Whereas the Stained Glass is a demonstration of a bygone era and original method of making sparkling wines known as Pétillant Naturel or Pét Nat.
All of the Ken Forrester wines are available from the Wine Lounge at the Stellenbosch farm. Consider celebrating your Valentine’s Day at this newly renovated and cosy space with marvellous views of the Helderberg Mountains. This is the perfect space to elevate your Valentines celebration by enjoying a personalised tasting experience with quality wines and the friendly atmosphere of the farm.
