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.

Tasting notes:
'Stylishly packaged with a merry-go-round theme, this Chenin Blanc bubbly from the irrepressible Ken Forrester is youthful and flavoursome, with apple pie intensity, some yeasty autolysis from 18 months on lees and a dry, tangy finish. A great party fizz. Drink 2020-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 90/100

Alc: 11.5% | RS: 4.1 g/L | TA: 7.0 g/L | PH: 3.1
