A Picadilly circus wine, with many styles.
The problem with chenin is that it is pretty easy to grow, so lots of people can make some pretty standard wines. At this point Chenin tastes a bit nothingy, quite refreshing but little else. However, it also makes some amazing wines, which are layered with flavour. In South Africa these are often single estates or producers who barrel age some wine, while in France you get some stunning wines from Vouvray. Both have a honeyed richness and silky style without losing the fresh acidity, which makes them excellent at ageing and fantastic with food.
