Chenin Blanc



  • a white grape variety that is used to produce a range of wine styles in the Loire region of France, including the sweet Vouvray wines and dry Anjou wines. It is also used in blends in California, Australia and South Africa. South Africa and the US now both grow more Chenin Blanc than does France. When used to produce sweet white wine the grape can be infected with Botrytis cinerea to concentrate sugar levels and flavour.
