2008 Man Vintners Chenin Blanc (Steen) Coastal South Africa (13.5%) – Color: Outside, hard to tell, Nose: a little melon, honeysuckle, Taste: high acidity, light tannins, decent finish Lamarr: A- (crisp acidity, very refreshing, though inexperienced in whites, this is very good) Hector: A- (crisper and more refreshing than our whites of yesteryear) Alastor: B (not a fan of white wines, very uninteresting to me)

I really enjoyed this crisp white. Potential for great summer wine if I can find it again in my area. Originally bought it randomly at World Market and haven't been able to find anywhere but online since then. Such a shame, I think we paid $7 something!

Tropical fruit guava and melon aromas crisp and bold sweet citrus backed by refreshing acidity and minerality characteristic of our coastal vineyards. A versatile food wine to go with most poultry fish and salad dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this super Chenin Blanc were sourced from various vineyards in the Agter-Paarl region. These are mostly un-irrigated, older (15 years+), bush-vine (un-trellised) vineyards with low yields of 6.5 tons/ha. The wine is filled with tropical fruit, guava and melon aromas, crisp and bold sweet citrus backed by refreshing acidity and minerality characteristic of the coastal vineyards. This is a versatile food wine to go with most poultry, fish and salad dishes. Also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon. Serve chilled.
