Ken Forrester Petit Chenin Blanc 2017

Perfect everyday drinking wine.

A youthful fresh wine with quince and pear drop flavours.  Earlier picked freshness shows on palate with crunchy green apple and grapefruit flavours. Good mouthfeel and appetisingly tangy finish.

Serve with all flavoursome, light al fresco summertime meals.
