Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is a white grape common in the Loire Valley of France. It’s versatile and can produce dry, off-dry, sparkling and sweet dessert wines. Also known as “Steen” in South Africa, wines made from Chenin Blanc typically exhibit floral aromas, apple and pear-like flavours and assertive acidity. In the best examples, wines exhibit a smooth silky texture, that really gives away the grape.
