Man Vintners Chenin Blanc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Lively tropical fruit and melon aromas, with crisp, bold, sweet citrus and tropical fruit flavors. An excellent wine to go with most fish, poultry or salad dishes. Also a fabulous aperitif for a hot summer day. Serve chilled.

MAN Vintners:
This MAN thing began with three friends and an idea: to make a wine that we ourselves would love to buy. Good quality, excellent value, and cool packaging.

This MAN thing began with three friends and an idea: to make a wine that we ourselves would love to buy. Good quality, excellent value, and cool packaging. Not exactly an epiphany, but enough to motivate us to action. What do we call it? Keeping peace in the family, we took the initials of our wives. (We each have one, that is.) So that is how we explained to Marie, Anette, and Nicky that we were going to be "busy" most weekends. It's for you! we told them. Could've slapped on something cute and furry but the world doesn't need another critter label. We are trying to do something different. It's the WINES we're excited about! Bold and gutsy, reflecting our extreme terroir. Grape growing in the Perdeberg Hills is not for wimps. There is little rainfall, so you have to be in tune with your vineyards. Too much crop or too much stress and you end up with grapes that can't ripen, or worse. But this is grape growing heaven for generations of our farmers. There are no fat, lazy bloated grapes here.

Front loaded with pineapple and lemon. Super sweet with a hint of straw on the backend. Respectable and refreshing even if it didn't rock my world.
