Chenin Blanc

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Chenin Blanc is a white wine made in numerous styles; the most famous examples are from France's Loire Valley, while there are also some notable versions from South Africa and California.

Chenin Blanc has very high acidity and is often produced in an off-dry style called demi-sec. A dry style from the Loire is called Savennières. There are also sparking versions of Chenin Blanc, namely Crémant de Loire also known as Saumur.

Dry versions are made by a few artisan estates in California, although a typical inexpensive California version is off-dry or lightly sweet. Steel aged with appealing citrus fruit, these wines should be drunk young and pair well with simple salads.
