Simonsig 2014 "Stellenbosch" Chenin Blanc, South Africa

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)
Price: $14
KWG Score: 89
No. Professional Ratings: 3
# of Cases: 28,000
This Chenin Blanc from South Africa is a good value. Its bouquet is rich and buttery, with hints of oak and citrus, and perhaps some grapefruit. The wine was medium bodied with nice mouthwatering acidity. It was also smooth and balanced. Its flavor profile is pear with notes of dried apricots and apples. This Chenin Blanc stands really well on its own, but it could also pair nicely with a lobster casserole. It is a very nice bottle of wine for the price. We really enjoyed it. - Karen & Stuart
