Not at tonight’s tasting but I opened it at home to compare to their reserve. Dry, crisp, refreshing. Good value Chenin! 🇿🇦

looking for the perfect Spring white #wine? Think Chenin Blanc fr #SouthAfrica, dependably dry & wallet-friendly. This Ken Forrester 'Petit' is melony and crisp, bursting open on yer palate like a crocus - at perfectly named gastropub YN bar in #nyc

Subtle aroma; scent of freeze dried strawberries (like in Captain Crunch cereal or Strawberry Qwik)

Great quaffer. Light, crisp, balanced, and refreshing. 13% abv. At $12 hard to beat.

Entertaining tonight with friends from Edmonton. Starting the night off with a South African Chenin (inspired by last night’s French Chenin) a gorgeous gold colour with a nose of candied pineapple, honey and white flowers that trickle into vanilla, tropical fruit and lime flavours. Delicious.
