Solms-Delta Chenin Blanc 2016 – $11.99
We were pleased to discover that the motto of the Solms-Delta Wine Farm is “Creating wine, music and hope.” In fact, this wine is nicknamed “Vastrap” (meaning “trample”) after the style of music which unites Khoesan trance-dance with Dutch folk music. Uniting diverse cultures through music? We sure need more of that. Chenin Blanc is the most widely planted grape in South Africa, and this Chenin shows why. We love its ripe, summer flavors of guava, yellow apple and banana, and its fresh, clean finish. Since we first featured this wine last year, it has become a Wineshop staple.
