KWV Classic Collection Chenin Blanc 2013
By Christian Eedes, 11 September 2013
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.
