My cheap wine find this week is Simonsig Chenin Blanc 2005, from South Africa (SKU# 613414). Its deep gold colour promises a rich experience, and the wine delivers with lovely aromas of beeswax, pineapple, minerals and spice. It’s dry, with high alcohol (14%) that gives it a roly-poly weightiness, and though the finish is not very lengthy, it’s hardly missed at this price point. The wine shows very nice varietal expression in a ripe style, it’s widely available, and it’s only $13.99!
