DRINK OF THE WEEK
3rd August 2020
Winemaker's Selection Paarl Chenin Blanc
Lidl 4.79
Drinker Rating 89

Well there's value ad there's value and t less than a fiver this chenin blanc is a real bargain. At this level wines will generally not set the world alight but this little beauty is just spot on at the price point.

It has just the right amount of chenin character (peachy, honey notes) to raise it above the boring old light, dry, neutral zone, fresh acidity backs up the floral palate and chilled well will be a lovely patio wine - or, as I like it in a 50/50 mix with soda water over lots of ice.

A perfect summer white.


Cheers!
