- In stock, ready to ship
TASTING NOTE: Ken Forrester Wines has a superb reputation for Chenin Blanc, and this sparkling wine in the classic tradition is no exception. Shows a creaminess and delicate mousse while still maintaining bright, fresh apple, pear and quince aromas. An ideal bubbly to celebrate with and equally at home with light creamy chicken and fish dishes.
PRODUCER: Ken Forrester represents the true pioneering spirit of the post-apartheid South African wine industry. Drawing on the examples of top Loire whites, he has used his uniquely placed Chenin vines to maximum effect and has single-handedly led a Chenin Blanc quality revolution. As a result, these wines have achieved iconic status worldwide.
WINEMAKING: A carefully selected cool vineyard site allows the grapes to mature while maintaining the all important refreshing acidity. Made by the Cap Classique or traditional method, this wine aged for 18 months on lees.
