2016 Simonsig Chenin Blanc is the perfect picnic sipper
The 2016 Simonsig Chenin Blanc is what every inexpensive chardonnay wants to be when it grows up. It has a bracing, unoaked acidity that makes your mouth water and honeydew and tropical notes made for outdoor sipping with mild, creamy cheeses or shellfish. A great dry white wine value, it comes from a Stellenbosch winery with almost 50 years of experience with the popular South African varietal.
$11. Available at Lukas Wine & Spirits
