Texture: Medium-plus weight, fun, juicy, and energetic white blend.
If you haven’t ever tasted wines from South Africa, here is the lowest entry barrier that you will find, hands down. Badenhorst makes some of the best wines in all of South Africa, and this little white gem, for just about $10, blows it up. This blend of aromatic grapes—Chenin Blanc and Viognier—is framed by the more familiar Chardonnay. The combination is like a ballet dancer; it’s elegant, beautiful, and dynamic but anchored by muscular strength. If you’re a fan of quaffable yet slightly complex whites without any fuss, this is a great value.
What you’ll taste: Exotic citrus, white peaches, honeysuckle, ginger, and a touch of sunshine in your glass.
Food Pairing: The perfect picnic wine to enjoy with light cheeses or at home with your favorite sushi.
