For ‘coupon wine’ as it quickly became known, it was very good. South African Chenin is often bulk wine, grown at too high a yield in vineyards that are too hot for it, but this was a pleasant surprise.
It had sparky fresh fruit and smooth honey. Bright citrus balances sweet pineapple to make it highly gluggable. 13.5% alcohol feels about right in this off dry yet crisp wine.
Ken Forrester seems like a nice guy. Thanks for the coupon.
