Review date: October 31, 2015

Wine Review: This white gold colored Chenin Blanc from South Africa is a good value. It opens with a fragrant and appealing apricot and tangerine bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with notes of saline, white pepper and pink grapefruit. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger for a bit. I would pair this wine with clams casino with bacon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A crisp, expressive, medium-bodied, wine with pure fruit flavours for everyday drinking - also pairs well with food. Light yellow/straw in appearance. Vibrant aromas of quince and fruit salad. On the palate, fresh stone fruit and apple flavours are backed by refreshing acidity and minerality. A versatile food wine that will pair well with poultry, shellfish, and vegetable dishes. Serve chilled.

Organic status: not organic
