Indaba Chenin Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes for this crisp, easy-drinking white were sourced from 2 distinct soil types: Table Mountain sandstone, which brings out luscious flavors of honeyed apple, melon and tropical fruit; and decomposed granite, which accentuates Chenin Blanc’s citrus and mineral character. An extremely versatile food partner, this crowd-pleaser matches well with a wide variety of dishes, from salads to seafood, mild cheeses to light pasta dishes, sushi to spicy ethnic cuisine. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate recently lauded the Indaba brand for delivering “truly mind-boggling values.”

“Indaba” is the Zulu word for “a meeting of the minds,” or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for a sharing of ideas. The brand was created as a celebration of the democratization process in South Africa, and from its inception, the wines have conveyed the spirit of South Africa to American consumers. A portion of the proceeds from the Indaba wines supports a scholarship for formerly disenfranchised South Africans who are interested in wine-related careers. Through growth of the brand and via the affiliated scholarship, Indaba is proud to be a part of the positive changes that are altering the face of South Africa’s wine industry. Read less

Very fruit, tutti frutti perfumed with a real intense fruit stripes gum kind of nose. On the palate this is round and fairly lush with a sweet edge to the honeydew and candied citrus fruits. It’s got good acids offering cut on the palate but is a relatively simple wine. The melony finish is clean and refreshing, making this easy drinking wine perfect for a casual party and suitable for a variety of light dishes. This would work well with some salty prosciutto and melon. 85pts

Lots of pear, pineapple and citrus on the nose. The finish was pleasantly surprising, with a touch of lemongrass and curry spice. This is a perfect wine to drink ice cold, with thai food.

One of Astor's best white wine values, this Chenin Blanc has tantalizing aromas of ripe pears and flowers, with exuberant tropical fruit on the palate. This is great with cheeses, fish, and light pasta dishes.
