The South African 2006 Spice Route Chenin Blanc cost under $18, has 13.5% alcohol, and scored a fine 16+ points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20.
Peach, melon, complex aged aromas of smoky spice, and mixed fruits all came together in this 14 year old white wine, now turning deep gold.
It was served with pineapple encrusted chicken, mixed rice and endumani greens.
I love putting the complex flavors of old wines to the test. This one scored an A. In Vino Veritas.
