    Chenin

    The versatile Chenin Blanc‘s pretensions to classic grape status are mainly realised in the Loire Valley, where its floral aroma, apple and pear-like flavour and acidity contribute to long-lived dry styles and luscious sweet whites around Bonnezeaux, Quarts de Chaume, Vouvray and Layon, and, on occasions, full-flavoured sparkling wines. In the New World, it is South Africa‘s most widely planted grape variety, it is widely planted in California, Australia, Argentina and New Zealand, and occasionally produces quality dry whites when barrel-fermented.
