Groenendal Chenin Blanc 2007 wine review by (PB)
I paid $16 for this S. African Chenin presenting with a light golden hue and aromas of vanilla, Clementine rind, powder and sweet citrus.
Palate--nicely integrated citrus flavors with solid acid base, grapefruit in the rear--more a feel than a flavor like grapefruit aftertaste--finishing with light pear or peach but very faint.
So here's the difference between a great value wine and a decent wine: This wine is a good varietal but at $16, there are numerous other Chenins just as good for about half the price. Scroll down for example and peruse my review of Forrester's "Petit" Chenin Blanc and then raise a glass.
