Wines to Try – MAN Chenin Blanc

The brand incorporates the initials of the names of the three winemakers’ wives—Marie, Anette and Nicky. The wines are distinctive in that these winemakers are focused on producing a range of varietal wines from one region, the Agter-Pearl area of South Africa.

This is a crisp, medium-bodied wine with vibrant aromas of quince and tropical fruit. On the palate, fresh stone fruit (apricots and peaches) and apple flavors are backed by acidity and a mineral quality.

The Chenin Blanc is the only free-run juice (no pressing of the grapes) to preserve its clean and natural character, with refreshing acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavors.

It’s a versatile option for almost any dish, especially Thai curries, Mediterranean tapas and rich seafood dishes. The wine is also fabulous as an aperitif for a hot summer afternoon and ages beautifully over two to five years.

Come try a glass or bottle of this South African gem at the Twisted Grape Wine Bar & Cafe in Shalimar.
