Man Chenin Blanc 2009 review by (PB)
Light golden hue with nice aromas of sweet cream, green apple notes with traces of pear and maybe even light guava.
Palate--Racy acidity, juicy fruit core of citrus lemon/lime with a slightly bitter finish.
This is different than previous vintages and is a bit edgy. It is okay for a $9 wine but past vintages were super value Chenins. This one will pair nicely with buttery, fatty foods but I would try something else in a Chenin of which there are many nice values out there. Raise a glass of Chenin Blanc--the Rodney Dangerfield of varietals--but probably not this one.
Colloquially known as "Steen" in South Africa so don't miss a good Chenin because of the name.
