Stellenbosch, South Africa
65 sek (ca 6,50 €)

13,5 % abv
100 % Chenin Blanc

YUM! Really want to recommend this one. Lots of tropical fruit, melon, citrus and a nice minerality. The typical Chenin Blanc high acidity. Light in body, but with some texture through having been on its lees for 3 months. A great summer wine. Good with sallads and light dishes.

Marie, Anette and Nicky. The names of the wives of three friends getting together to make wines they would buy themselves (good idea)... More to be read on the website: 264.000 bottles of this wine were made, so you might want to hurry up.

Ever since our trip to South Africa, we like Chenin Blanc and this one is definitely a nice one. I am surprised, considering the low price!
