This South African Chenin (colloquially called “Steen”) is straw colored with nice full peach and guava bouquet and nose.
It seems a bit alcoholy on serving but I served way too warm. After bringing to the right temperature the wine has decent structure with good acid making it pair with various foods adequately. In the mouth I would have guessed this to be a Sauvignon Blanc rather than a Chenin with it’s somewhat grassy tones and fruity palate. All in all it’s not a bad wine but nothing memorable either. I paid $10 for it so raise a glass.
