Ken Forrester, Sparklehorse MCC 750ml 2016South Africa, Stellenbosch
Ken Forrester Wines has a superb reputation for Chenin Blanc, and this first 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 14 months on less 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 good at home with light creamy chicken and fish dishes.' – Ken Forrester, Winemaker
