It’s unfair to a certain extent, because I l*o*v*e Chenin Blanc in it’s French forms (Vouvray) that showcase honey, flowers, apples, and high acid. I happen to think Vouvray are oft overlooked great ‘with food’ wines.
This one, well, it’s got the acid down.
Appellation: Western Cape, South Africa
Tasting Notes: 100% Chenin Blanc. Pretty pale color. Nose is mango, pineapple, apple, and lemon.
Dominated by the pineapple, this is a very high acid wine. Lots of lemon, a little mango too. On it’s own, it’s a little acidic, but with food, it settles down nicely. Am I going to run out and buy more? Probably not, but if I were having 50 people over for banquet chicken, this would work just fine. OK.
Price: $7.99 at Total Wine
