Description
The flagship Chenin Blanc from the winemaking team of Ken Forrester and Martin Meinert, the FMC (Forrester Meinert Chenin) is hand-picked from low-yielding bush vines and is always a stunner. Wine writer Neal Martin awarded the 2016 vintage 93 points; expect similar greatness from the 2017.
Tasting Notes
The 2018 The FMC is pure hand-selected Chenin Blanc from low-yielding bush vines planted in 1974, matured on the lees for 12 months in barrel. It has a complex nose of nectarine, pithy stone fruit, lanolin and beeswax and seems to constantly evolve in the glass; suggestions of white chocolate and broom emerge with time. The intense grapefruit and mango flavors are counterbalanced by the killer line of acidity. There is power in this FMC, but a sense of elegance triumphs on the precise finish. This comes highly recommended and can be broached either in its youth or with several years in the cellar. Drinking window: 2021-2042. Score - 94. (Neal Martin, vinous.com, Nov. 2019)
