100% Chenin Blanc

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.

Notes on the 2017 vintage are not yet available.

Tasting notes on the 2016 vintage:
'It's always fun to share a glass of this MCC bubbly with Mr Chenin Blanc himself, Ken Forrester. Dry, frothy and showing some bready autolysis-derived complexity from 18 months on lees, this is zesty, crunchy and appealingly dry. Drink 2019-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 90/100
