Kumala Reserve Chenin Blanc


This is excellent Chenin Blanc, the best I have tasted for some time – and good value at only £7.50.  I don’t understand why this wine is only 50p more than their other chenin blanc – why market two wines so closely priced? Again I must express my wish that they had ‘Fairly Traded’ credentials…

Tasting notes: Crisp, dry wine. Melon notes, and orchard fruit flavours. Hints of vanilla from oak
