When measuring straightforward quality against price, you won't do any better than with this South Aftican white, which has the weight and mouthfeel of a fine Chardonnay. Seductive aromas of pear, apple and peach lead to a muscular mouthful of Bartlett pear and just-ripe banana. No gimmicks here, just pure, unadulterated fruit balanced by just-right acids. Bar none, this is one of the best values in white wine. Must be that Chenin is still grossly underappreciated.
