Online Pass for ONE - Old Vine Chenin Blanc
Summertime is a perfect time for delicoius Chenin Blanc, but what difference does it make when your wine label says 'old vines'? And faced with a choice between buying a £10 Chenin Blanc from South Africa or a £20 version, which should you choose - will the more expensive always be better?
South Africa has a reputation for producing top drawer Chenin Blanc, but there is also much of it that is unremarkable. The Swartland area is particularly blessed with plots of stunning old vines in promising positions near mountains offering shady relief from the heat to slow the ripening of the grapes.
A mouthful of a well made Chenin Blanc can deliver a beautiful intensity and an array of different flavours. Come and enjoy a comparison of different quality viens and varied winemaking skills that will help you decide when to push the boat out on price and when an entry level wine would be enough.
