KWV Chenin Blanc

Date July 22, 2008 | Sean | Chenin Blanc & South Africa & White Wine

This wine gets it high score for two main reasons.  1. Value 2. It's not Chardonnay!  Whoa, hold your angry emails until you read the rest. As we've stated many times sometimes you want a white wine that doesn't carry the typical big bad Chardonnay character, overwhelming your meal at every sip.
This dark horse out of Sourth Africa is a very pleasant, easy drinking white on a hot summer day.  Excellent fruit and floral balance.  Clean and crisp on the palate and amiable to most foods.  So far this summer it has become the white house wine, and at under $10 a bottle, how can you go wrong?
Tip: Keep and eye out for value priced South African white wines - you'll be pleasantly surprised (most of the time)
