2012 Jean Daneel Signature Chenin Blanc

3g

Here is another great wine from South Africa.  As I keep searching and get pointers from our friends Roy and Diane who are from South Africa, I’m finding that the price of these wines are really great.  Great value.  I encourage you to search for these wines when you are at your local wine shop or liquor store and give them a try.

Smell
The aromas are moderate.  The development is young-fruity with aromas of citrus, melon, green apple.

Taste
The Chenin Blanc was not sweet; it was medium-bodied with lively acidity and there were no noticeable tannins.  The wine was very flavorful.  Tasting it I noted a silky-soft mid-palate flavors with a medium length finish.

abv: 13.5%

How much:

Appellation/Region: Napier Western Cape, South Africa.

Wine maker notes:  The Chenin Blanc is made in the French traditional method.  It is sources from old bush vines, fermented and matured for twelve months in oak barrels.

I rated the 2012  Jean Daneel Signature Chenin Blanc three glasses.  I really enjoyed the Chenin Blanc and would definitely buy it again.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine!
