Blacc Wine Study Group and Master Class with Shawn Mathyse from Ken Forrester


5 May 2020

Blacc Study group is an initiative Tuanni Price started before Covid 19. Members of Blacc who work in the wine industry and are interested in taking an advance wine exam join the study group simply to learn more about wine. After meeting for a few weeks they finished the entire WSET Level 2 study guide.

She thought it would be a creative way to learn by talking to actual professionals in the wine and spirits business so I invited winemakers, sommeliers and vineyard managers to host Master Classes. They meet each week online Tuesday and Thursday for this master class.

This session we have a Master Class from Shawn Mathyse, the Assistant Winemaker for Ken Forrester Wines. Shawn talks about everything Chenin Blanc. He also tells us the benefit of working under the leadership if Ken Forrester, who has been rightfully coined the King of Chenin Blanc in South Africa. Who knew Chenin was so versatile? From Dry, light body to dessert and sparkling KF Wines does it all.
