2017 Tania & Vincent Carême "Terre Brulée" Chenin Blanc Swartland

91 points Wine Spectator: "Pretty yellow apple, mirabelle plum and white peach flavors are gilded with honeysuckle and verbena notes. Shows good length on the finish, with a pretty whiff of shortbread. Chenin Blanc. Drink now. (JM)" (09/2018) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a quiet vintage of the Carêmes’ South African chenin blanc, the fruit off 40-year-old dry-farmed vines grown on shale and granite. Fermented with ambient yeasts in a mix of stainless steel and wood tanks (a small portion ferments in barriques), it feels broad and earthy, with an ...Read More »

2017 Domaine du Petit Clocher Anjou Blanc

2017 A.A. Badenhorst "Curator" White Blend Swartland

"The CURATOR is a range of dynamic wines that are selected after the vintage each year. The grapes are grown in the Swartland region on the West Coast of Southern Africa. The vineyards are mostly bushvines growing in granite and slate soils, sourced from a number of traditional farmers. Chenin Blanc is the backbone and structure of this blend. The Chardonnay was naturally fermented and took a long time to complete fermentation, resulting in great texture and wacky aromas of dried peaches and apricots and ripe citrus. The Viognier, from one of Badenhorsts ...Read More »

2016 Pine Ridge California Chenin Blanc-Viognier

Wine Enthusiast: "Crisp and tangy, this light-bodied wine has a (pardon the pun) piny green-apple aroma, vivid apple and lime flavors and lively acidity. It will be especially good as an apéritif to whet the appetite. (JG)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: In the early 1990s, Pine Ridge crafted this delectable blend as an experimental bottling, creating one of their most beloved and popular wines to date. This unlikely marriage of two generally uncoupled varietals unites the crisp, honeyed fruit of Chenin Blanc with the plush body and juicy stone fruit notes of Vi ...Read More »

2018 Radley & Finch Chenin Blanc Western Cape Top Pick!
2018 Radley & Finch Chenin Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Chenin Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. Grapes were sourced from both bush vines and trellised vines primarily in the Agter Paarl and Swartland regions. Winemaker Thinus Kruger primarily utilized indigenous yeasts in a particularly slow fermentation to develop complexity. The result is a citrusy and yellow fruited profile with hints of spice and grain. It is ready to drink right now, but will fill out and add complexity for a couple of years.

Best from 2018 through 2030. *Ranked #15 on Top 100 of 2017, Smart Buys* (JM)" (08/2017) K&L Notes: In the heart of Anjou lies the Baumard property, which has been in the family since 1634.

2016 Domaine du Petit Coteau Vouvray Sec

All the wines this at beautiful little organic domaine are made from 100% Chenin Blanc but vary in degrees of sweetness depending on where the grapes are harvested from. Planted in the sandy clay soils over tuffeau (that magical chalky soil of the Loire), these wines show the range of the quality that can be found in Vouvray for a mere pittance.

2017 Jelu Chenin Blanc San Juan

Based in the Zonda Valley of San Juan, a high altitude (nearly 4,000 feet asl) area with extremely rocky soils that are naturally high in potassium, Bodgas Borbore makes fresh, mineral wines in this little known viticultural area of Argentina. A bright, appley, squeaky clean Chenin produced from 10 year old vines, this is a great expression of the grape variety.

Since 1875, the Vigneau-Chevreau family has farmed the chalky soils of this 69-acre Vouvray domaine, planted entirely to Chenin Blanc. Jean-Michel Vigneau began steering the family domaine in an organic direction in the early ’90s and by 1999 Vigneau-Chevreau received its biodynamic certification from Ecocert.

2017 Gen del Alma "Ji Ji Ji" Chenin Blanc Gualtallary

In contrast to the racy, very low abv 2016, this vintage of Ji Ji Ji Chenin is a big boy at 11.5% abv! We love what Gen del Alma is doing in Tunuyan (Uco Valley), in this case from the paraje (sort of like the French notion of a lieu dit, or named place smaller than a village but bigger than a vineyard) of Villa Seca. With tangy quince flavors and great concentration due to the 70-year-old vines, this Chenin is a gem and a steal for the price.

It was matured for 11 months in neutral oak with around 310gm/L residual sugar and 11 gm/L total acidity. It has a very pure nose of honey, mango, quince and tangerine - very perfumed as usual.

Importer's notes: "From a seven and a half acre parcel named 'Touch of the Mitten' because it’s cold up there during pruning season. Planted primarily in 1979, this is Xavier’s youngest parcel of Chenin, growing in limestone flint soil. This is normally raised entirely in older barrels, although the very productive year of 2015 outpaced his supply of barrels so a third was raised in steel. The élevage goes for six months with regular lees stirring, after which the wine is bottled to preserve fruit and elegance. Production averages 1,875 cases."

2017 Raats "Old Vine" Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch

Neal Martin writes: "The rise of Raats Family Wines in recent years has been a pleasure to witness. Whilst observing the "revolution" in Swartland has given much pleasure, the same ambition and foresight had to be shown in that most important of wine regions, Stellenbosch. Of course, altering the structure of this traditional region takes much longer. Dismantling long-held but out-of-date views cannot be done overnight, but winemakers like Bruwer Raats and Gavin Slabbert are spearheading the future of the region."
