South Africa enjoys a remarkable history with Chenin Blanc, known locally as Steen. This particular Chenin Blanc rendition shows a vibrant, engaging nose brimming with citrus and tropical notes. The palate reveals more concentrated citrus themes with lime and grapefruit taking center stage. The lean lines of acidity and unmistakable minerality tailor the fruit profile, while plush textures offer up a rich, round mouthfeel. The 2014 MAN Chenin Blanc is full of palate intrigue and brings a generous wine to the table for a very reasonable price.
Pairing Picks: A must-try with fresh fish, shellfish, poultry or full-flavored seasonal veggie dishes, Chenin Blanc promises plenty of pairing versatility.
