From the bottle:
“Indaba is the traditional Zulu forum for sharing ideas. In this spirit we collaborate to produce great wines.
This crisp, refreshing white is packed with luscious tropical fruit, citrus, and melon flavors and a touch of honey. It makes a great match for salads, light pasta dishes, mild cheeses, sushi, and seafood.
World-wide sales of Indaba wines help fund the Indaba scholarship, established to open the wine industry to a new generation of South Africans.
Today’s wine is the second white we’ve tasted from South Africa’s Indaba wines, and much like the last one, the Indaba Chardonnay 2011 – In Da Zone, we’ve come away very impressed with the quality offered for the very low price.
The 2011 Indaba Chenin Blanc begins with pleasant and even complex aromas of lime, melon, guava and other tropical fruit plus a little granny smith apple. Tasting this medium-bodied wine reveals a thick and luscious mouthfeel with crisp and clean flavors of zesty citrus and melon, nice minerality and even a bit of spice. The crisp and clean theme continues on the lingering finish. This is a fantastic wine and a steal at only $7. Stock up!
Overall Rating: 8.3
