MAN Family Wines Chenin Blanc Coastal Region, South Africa 2013

man-chenin-blancSandra Silfven, writing in the Detroit News, took the opportunity to showcase the wines of José Condé this week – a Kansas-born winemaker and proprietor of South Africa’s Stark-Condé wines, and a partner in MAN Family Wines.

Of this Man Chenin Blanc she said: “Chenin Blanc is the signature white wine of South Africa and is known as “Steen” to the locals. The Chenins in the Cape are a world apart in taste from Chenins grown in France’s Loire and the U.S. This one is as zesty, grapefruity and tart as a Sauvignon Blanc, as green apple-like as a Chardonnay, as minerally as a Pinot Grigio from Italy’s Alto Adage — and still has those mandarin orange tones of the Loire. It’s so crisp, lean and refreshing – for a good reason: They only ferment the free-run juice, which eliminates the tannins and herbal flavors of the thick skins. I am totally impressed with the style, the balance and the food-worthiness.”

Price: $9 to $12
