Ernie Els Chenin Blanc Big Easy 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A touch reticent on the nose though this does deliver some attractive quince, sour plum and vaguely green nutty aromas. Smooth, tart, and rich though undoubtedly from a touch of RS here. The flavors are simple but intense, with quince, lime, and even a little guava rolling off the powerful palate. Thi is an intense wine and the electric acidity carried it, showing off some white peach notes on the backend before this unfurls on the moderately long finish with all it’s tart, soursop and citron intensity. Break this out with grilled fish featuring fruit salsas and you'll be happy all summer long. 87pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
