KWV Steen 2006 wine review by (PB)
This South African delight is a pale straw with a lovely fruit filled bouquet full of sweet apricot, peach, apple and pears in the nose. Steen is the colloquial name for Chenin blanc in S. Africa. It is really surprisingly dry for as sweet as it smells. It has tight flavors, nice Chenin acidity with a lingering finish that is pleasant.
This wine should be chilled and served with lighter foods. For $8 you cannot go wrong so raise a glass!
