Petit Ken Forrester 2011 Chenin Blanc,
$8.49-$11.99, 87 points, is another value white wine from South Africa where more Chenin Blanc is grown than in France from whence comes the grape.
I don't drink wine because it is from conscientious producers, but that is a satisfying plus, and Ken Forrester Winery proclaims that as their note-worthy wine making policy. Ken-Forrester-wines-Home page, go to "About" for details.
To the wine: often apple is suppose to be the fruit offering in Chenin Blanc, but in this mineral clear wine I could only smell and taste honey dew melon. Certainly others will find much more than I could, but let me just say that the flavor carried on this medium bodied white wine was quite good and had plenty of acidity to pair with my pizza.
The finish was fairly long on ginger spice and just a hint of effervescence.
