Chenin Blanc produces wines that range from bone-dry to sweet. Although the flavour of Chenin Blanc varies, the grape is known for its acidity, floral nature and honey and stone-fruit profile. Chenin thrives in cooler climates like the Loire Valley, where its acidity is preserved. On the other hand, warmer climates like South Africa and Australia are producing dry-style Chenin Blanc of outstanding quality. Fresh and fruity Chenin Blanc pairs well with vegetable dishes or salads; oaked versions pair with rich fish or cream-based chicken entrées; and sweet Chenin Blanc naturally matches desserts or serves as a balancing counterpart to rich, pungent cheeses.
