'Trust Ken Forrester - Mr Chenin Blanc - to make a sparkling wine out of his favourite grape. Youthful and tangy with good structure, some creamy autolysis from nine months on lees, apple and citrus fruit and fine bubbles. Drink 2021-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 90/100

'Cap classique from a cool vineyard site preserving the all-important acid freshness, 100% chenin, 2018 aged 28 months on lees for delicate mousse & creamy texture, crisp, dry apple & quince flavours.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Ken Forrester Wines has a superb reputation for Chenin Blanc, and this sparkling wine in the classic tradition is no exception. 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 7 months on lees and 28 months sur lattes to develop 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.' – Winemaker
