The Chenin Blanc grape

The taste of the wine obtained is fresh with notes of grass and green apples and resembles Sauvignon Blanc. The Chenin Blanc contains relatively many acids, which gives it strength and can therefore mature for several years.

The Chenin Blanc is versatile and is mainly found in the Lioredal and also in South Africa (called 'Steen' there). It is said that the grape was used in South Africa for brandy. Today, wines made from chenin blanc have concentrated finesse.
