Kwv White Blend Steen 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chenin Blanc grape is the most prolific in South Africa. This is due mainly because of the warm summer days that allow the sugar levels to rise in the early part of the growing season and the cool fall weather that allows the grapes flavors to develop at a slow moderate pace. At the harvest the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures until dry. The wine is bottled after a cold stabilization.

This chenin's sweet lime and grapefruit pith flavors will meld with a Cobb salad.

A clean and bracingly dry Chenin Blanc from South Africa's famous cooperative. Tastes like something between French Vouvray and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Outside the U.S., this wine is normally found as Chenin Blanc, and it seems sad that the U.S. importer wanted to revert to the old South African name for the varietal. It is particularly a shame because this is a good value wine, with ripeness, softness and plenty of acidity to go with the pear fruit flavors.

Ripe fruit and bubblegum hints open this clean, angular white. Quickly turns much less sweet than expected, its ample melon and tropical fruit supported by brisk acidity. A refreshing value Chenin Blanc ("Steen" in South Africa) that closes clean and surprisingly long.

Tasting Notes:

KWV Steen is an extra dry Chenin Blanc with intense tropical fruit and floral aromas. The flavor of the wine is enhanced by the firm acidity which gives the wine a crisp, dry finish.

The Chenin Blanc grape is the most prolific in South Africa.
