REGION: Western Cape, South Africa
VARIETIES: Chenin Blanc
Chenin Blanc is one of those ridiculously versatile grape varieties. It can be creamy, rich and full like a Saumur; it can be sweet and honeyed like a Vouvray; or it can be light, crisp and fresh, like it is here. At this price, you really can't argue with flavours like this. Think tropical fruit, melon and peaches; as a lovely alternative to a bog standard Sauvignon Blanc, it's perfect.
