Ken Forrester Dirty Little Secret Two NV
By Christian Eedes, 18 February 2022
Whereas the first version of Dirty Little Secret Chenin Blanc by Ken Forrester was from the 2015 vintage, the second is a blend of the 2016 and 2017 harvests.
Grapes from a 1959 Piekenierskloof vineyard, total production amounted to seven 400-litre barrels. Golden in colour, the nose shows yellow peach, naartjie, orange, roast almond, earth and some yeasty, waxy notes. It’s a rich and sumptuous wine with dense fruit, tangy acidity and a savoury finish. Lots going on, as you might hope for given its price tag of R1 255 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 93/100.
