Wine of the Week for June 26, 2006

Roberts Rock Chenin Blanc-Chardonnay 2005 - $9.95
Style: W1/W2
South Africa

Better check the price of this one. The LCBO database pegs it at $7.95 (current on special at $6.95) but I know I paid $9.95. The colour is a full honey-straw. The nose presents honey, peach, citrus and baked apple aromas. The palate is crisp yet full, round and creamy smooth, dominated by grapefruit and somewhat reminiscent of chablis. Body and length are both good. I'd suggest pairing it with full-flavoured fish or pork tenderloin. (LCBO 501304)

Since the KWV was such a hit with everyone here, I'm going to give this one a go. On special for $6.95?? Then how can I pass up trying this.
