More about this wine from Robertson, South Africa
Chenin Blanc's relationship to Sauvignon Blanc is kinda like being Beyonce's little sister. You might not know Solange Knowles, but she's one badass and talented lady. She might not scream pop music, but she sure is a cool and stylish one. We heart Sauvignon Blanc, but we can't forget how good it's grape sibling, Chenin Blanc is for sipping on the reg.

This version comes from South Africa, one of the more underrated wine regions in the world and a hotbed for finding wines that outperform their price point. This juice brings the value to the schoolyard if you know what we mean. The nose immediately transports you to the tropics with whiffs of pineapple, guava, and lime. The palate adds a slight sophistication to this tropical soiree with a hint of dried apple and a lemon zesty, balanced finish.
How to drink it

While...

Looking chic and feeling fancy on your friend's well-kept roof deck. You're rocking your favorite pair of shades and you can't be bothered with drama while you bob your head to the song you selected as unofficial DJ.

Listening to...

M.I.A. - Bad Girls

Eating...

Fresh seafood. A match made in pairing heaven. Visit your local grocery store or fish monger and get a beautiful piece of tuna to sear in a cast iron skillet. A delicate salad on the side ties everything together.
