Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2007
This South African white wine was produced by the Simonsig Winery in Stellenbosch. It starts with a nice aroma of golden delicious apples and Bartlett pears. The taste is full of flavors from apricots, pineapples and melons along with some honey and raisins from the chenin blanc. This grape was originally from France but is now one of the largest grown grapes in South Africa. A nice dry wine with a fair amount of acidity. This could be paired with an appetizer or with fish. Nice every-day wine that retails for about $10. Imported by Quintessential Wines.
