    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, with just a tad of green and lemon color. Very floral aromas. Smooth tropical fruit taste with hints of soft citrus that continues through a medium length finish with a dusty mineral end. VERY refreshing, fresh, easy drinking South African Chenin Blanc that gets better and better as it warms up…and at only $7.46 it’s a real Bargain.

    She said: Light golden color, clear, with thick steadily moving legs. I didn’t expect much as it was purchased from a chain wine store but I was delightfully surprised. With a fruity aroma and a lovely floral taste it begged for a good food accompaniment which we did not have. Pretzels provided our snack but the wine was up to much more with its smooth texture, medium body, and lovely long lasting finish. I love it and would buy it again even at more money. It is definitely a bargain wine at $7.46!
