Drink Chenin Blanc June 20, 2023

June 17, 2023 - June 25, 2023

Born in the Loire Valley of France where is is know as Vouvray, Chenin Blanc is a white wine grape with reported tracings as far back as the ninth century. Initially, it was cultivated by the French to make sparkling and dessert wines.  Today, Chenin Blanc has a reputation for producing high-quality dry wines, some of which can age for decades.

  • Chenin Blanc has high acidity, making it a versatile grape for producing a variety of styles from still, dry, and sparkling wines to well-balanced sweet wines.
  • More than 50 percent of the world’s Chenin Blanc vineyards are in South Africa, where the grape is historically known as Steen.
  • Chenin Blanc is the most widely planted grape variety in South Africa.
  • Chenin Blanc is one of the few white wines that can undergo malolactic fermentation and/or oak aging during the winemaking process.
