Chenin Blanc is a French white grape variety that has a natural high acidity. In South Africa Chenin Blanc is produced in six styles: fresh & fruity, rich & ripe (wooded, unwooded and slightly sweet), sweet and sparkling. Chenin Blanc wines originating from cooler areas (e.g. Elgin) tend to be unwooded with a lime green colour and light fruity flavours. Warmer area Chenin Blanc wines (e.g. Stellenbosch) tend to produce wooded wines of golden colour with tropical flavours.
