    Winemaker's Notes:

    This crisp, crowd-pleasing white from Mulderbosch's sister winery displays fresh peach, melon, citrus, and tropical fruit flavors, with hints of almond and delicate floral and spice notes. A versatile and refreshing alternative to boring Pinot Grigio, it works wonders with grilled vegetables, salads, pan-seared fish, smoked chicken, and light pasta dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Kanu Chenin offers fresh aromas of honey, pear and white fruit, followed by an elegant, curvy array of honey, spice and pear flavors. Food-friendly but a little luxuriant, it’s a fine example of Stellenbosch Chenin. Best Buy.

    I've been on a Chenin kick lately. So in my search for the great ones, reading and asking retailers, I was directed to Kanu, and understanably so! Beautifully displays tropical fruits, with a hint of almond and spice. Memorable wine, and of great value! My friends thoroughly enjoyed as well.

    My preference usually is a Chardonnay or a Cabernet Sauvignon. And usually from California (my home state). However, I love wine tastings and am always trying to find other wines I like in case I am in a restaurant with no good choices in my chosen groups. I have come up with two Chenin Blancs that I would order time and time again. One is this one and one is Cafe Juno, from South Africa. I will continue to study South African wines now. My husband and I had the best Chardonnay we have ever had, hands down, from South Africa, back in 2008. Louisvale.

    Certainly a LOVELY wine! I'm excited about this because I'm generally a red wine lover but sometimes you have to get out of the norm. Let me tell you this wine starts out with a great nose! I can't say enough ... it has great structure, smooth but with substance. Ideal ... in my opinion! I love a fine Sauv. Blanc but this I think would be more appealing to "the crowd". Please try ... It's just soooo good!

    Bought this due to never having this vintner's product before, and the high points given by the "experts" (WS, RP, whoever it was). But it wasn't nearly as good as THEY portended it to be. OK, nothing special.
