Poolside quaffer.

KWV Classic Collection Chenin Blanc 2013 (R38 a bottle retail) just won something at the Michelangelo International Wine Awards. Do wah diddy, diddy, dum diddy do.

My sample bottle was very primary. Nicely fruity although I’d be hard-pressed to be more specific. Guava? Apple? Hints thereof.   Thankfully not too lean or tart – a bit of sugar to coat the bright acidity.

My parents-in-law, who live in Wellington, not that far from the KWV Wine Emporium, pretty much treat the Classic Collection Chenin as their “house white”. They aren’t entirely doolally.

Score: 83/100.

    Hi Harry, In this instance, the first nonsense lyric that came to mind. A sort of “woo hoo” with bells on.

    I would have thought that

    “Now we’re together nearly every single day
    Singin’, “Do wah diddy diddy, dum diddy do”
    We’re so happy and that’s how we’re gonna stay
    Singin’, “Do wah diddy diddy, dum diddy do”

    Well, I’m hers, she’s mine
    I’m hers, she’s mine
    Wedding bells are gonna chime”

    was at least a 93?
