with a lively apple-like acidity running through the wine. There is a hint of spritz coming from a little residual carbon-dioxide which helps to lift the impression of freshness and acts as a preservative. This is for immediate drinking, but could be expected to age for three to five years."

This iconic Chenin is a benchmark South African bottling, and what Ken Forrester considers to be the ultimate expression of the Chenin Blanc grape. The grapes are grown in Ken Forrester’Read More...
s estate vineyards at the foot of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch.
The vineyards are farmed organically, and everything is done by hand. Grapes for the FMC are hand selected from a single block of low yielding Chenin bush vines planted in 1974. Each vine is pruned to 5 or 6 shoots, with 1 bunch per shoot. They are planted in Clovelly — a deep yellow sandy soil — on south-southwest-facing slopes.

Fans of Vouvray will need no introduction to Domaine Huet, as this biodynamically-farmed estate is probably the most famed and highly regarded producer in the region. While best known Read More...
for their still wines, Huet’s sparkling wines are also stellar. The bubbles for this all-Chenin Blanc fizz were created with a variation of the methode ancestrale-- where the wine is bottled before the first fermentation is finished. This technique results in a more gentle effervescence with a pressure of four atmospheres vs. six for Champagne. Winemaker Noel Pinquet (now retired) aged this 2007 for four years on the yeast prior to disgorgement. After the yeast was removed, Noel added a dosage of still Demi-Sec Vouvray to create a “medium” Brut with 10gr/l of residual sugar. The result is a straw yellow bubbly with the thinnest imaginable strands of bubbles that lift aromas of meadow flowers, biscuits and ripe pears. The pear notions carry over to the palate where they are complemented with flavors of dough, honey and nectarines while inflections of minerals and lemon curd linger in the finish. This is a flat-out charmer that surpasses many famous Champagnes we could name in terms of elegance, flavor interest and value.

PINE RIDGE 13 CHENIN/VIOGNIER
$10.95
Quantity

Pine Ridge has one of the most solid portfolios in California crafting flavorful Cabernets, Merlots, and Chardonnays; but what often strikes us most is their Chenin Blanc - Viognier blend! Read More...
This wine has been one of our perennial favorites for years. It is a rather unconventional blend, but once you taste the flavors and the refreshing qualities of the wine, we know you’ll be hooked just as we have been!

Pine Ridge’s winemaker Michael Beaulac likes the Chenin Blanc (79% of the blend) harvested early to maintain its bright acidity, while Viognier (21% of the blend) brings its signature fragrant bouquet. The 2013 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of succulent white nectarine, candied pineapple, green fig and subtle grapefruit. The crisp and slightly off-dry flavor profile lasts well through the clean and refreshing finish.

A 100% Chenin Blanc Brut from Loire Valley winemaker extraordinaire, Jacky Blot. The production begins as 40-80 year-old vines grown in the appellation of Montlouis (just across the Read More...
river from its Chenin-driven sibling, Vouvray). The result? A lively and delicate pétillant that dances across the palate with its 'fuzzy' bubbles - a kinder, gentler fizz in comparison to champagne's more defined and delineated pop. The bouquet is fresh and tickles the nose with white blossoms, apples and pear. A stylish and refined palate of pear, soft citrus elements and the barest nuance of almond blossom and pippin dash across the tongue. A crisp, clean and revitalizing finish leaves you wanting that next sip and before you know it you will be popping a second bottle. A tremendous value that enhances all manner of brunch fare, lounging Sundays and celebrations of all sorts.

on the finish. Lush, but defined and pure. Drink now through 2014."

This is as complex and rich a Chenin Blanc as we’ve had-- from pretty much anywhere. French in style, the South African terroir shows through brilliantly. A little bit about the process: for his white wines, all bunches are pressed, left for 24 hours to settle nicely, then racked straight into 225-liter Burgundian barrels where the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation will occur (this wine spent 9 months in 3rd fill French oak). All of Durand’s whites are kept on clean lees with regular battonage and soft filtration before bottling. The nose on Kama (transated from Sanskrit as ‘pleasure of the senses’) is kaleidoscopic: notes of wet stone, white florals, lemon grass, baking spices, stone fruits, a touch of petroleum and hints of creaminess captivated us. The palate was as deep with gorgeous, lush viscousity kept perfectly aloft with brilliant acidity. Flavors of white peach and mixed stone fruits, minerality, a touch of sweet spice balanced atop neutral oak, all seductively silky in texture, resolve in a flourish of flavorful depth, wondrous length and sated desires. Only 60 cases for USA.

People who sell French oak to wineries are incisive tasters and highly knowledgeable about winemaking. They have the rare opportunity to work with dozens of different houses and to taste many wines as informal consultants. So it wasn't so big a leap for Christophe Durand, who moved to Cape Town from France in 1995 to sell French oak barrels, to jump to the other side and become a winemaker. He bought a vineyard in the Simonsberg ward of South Africa's most famous wine area, Stellenbosch.

While Simonsberg’s Vins D’Orrance may be a relatively young wine estate, its French born owner and winemaker, Christophe Durand, certainly made the local wine fraternity sit up and take notice when one of his wines, the 2009 Cuvée Annais Chardonnay, was chosen to be served at the royal wedding of Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco. This “amazing” white wine was chosen as a tribute to Princess Charlene and her home country, and perfectly complemented the royal reception.
