The Liberator Special Edition 'Drinking the Stars' Cap Classique Brut, Napier 2016
Cap Classique's 50th anniversary was all the encouragement we needed to snap up our first Liberator fizz, a classic chardonnay (60%) and pinot noir (40%) blend disgorged for us in May 2021. The name 'Come Quickly, I am Drinking the Stars' is quirky but rather beautiful and sums up the joy of good fizz.

The Liberator is the persona behind a range of limited-edition parcels of wine, sourced from some of South Africa's most exciting and celebrated winemakers, all with their own back story.
It was those winemakers who inspired the project that was to become The Liberator – they and some exceptional wines which otherwise faced the all too common fate of being blended away into obscurity, the right place under any other guise not having been found for them, despite the wine's inherent quality and potential.
The project is the invention of normally perfectly sensible UK wine merchant and Master of Wine, Richard Kelley, with the innovative help of some bright young creatives. We came in already party to information otherwise confidential to the project, and were lucky enough to be in the right place (cellar, actually) at the right time to be able to snap up the very first Special Edition parcels to merit inclusion in The Liberator's eclectic portfolio.
Richard calls these parcels 'vinous orphans' and we have been happy to adopt many of them as limited-edition exclusives. These are always one-off parcels and thus available in limited quantities.
