    Winemaker's Notes:

    Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2011 is 100% Chenin Blanc. It is vibrant bright straw in color. On the nose the wine is leaping out of the glass with aromatics of ripe tropical fruits like pineapple, ripe pear, guavas and a hint of floral notes. Sun ripe grapes add to concentration of complex fruit flavors on the palate with hints of honey and raisins. The wine has a fresh crispy and smooth silky texture on the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Chenin Blanc forms the perfect introduction to South African Chenin at a bargain basement price. It has a crisp nose of fresh Nashi pear and chalk dust. The palate is nicely balanced with tangerine and apricot tinged fruit that leads to a delicate finish with well-judged acidity and hints of peach on the finish. This is straight to the points, no frills, delicious Chenin.
