Wine Entry : Houghton Chenin Blanc 2005 (Australian)

My parents got this wine from Giant supermarket at $20 plus. I found it nice and refreshing, not really a dessert wine but has sufficient sweetness to tease the palate. In the glass, it was a pale greenish-yellow.

Smell : Green apple, limey and grassy

Taste : Refreshing lime sweetness, fresh acidity, crisp cucumber

After taste : Slight bitter cucumber with firm acidity.

Description on the back of the bottle :
Houghton in Western Australia has establish an enviable reputation for producing distinct, award winning wines. Western Australia vineyards produce benchmark Chenin Blanc with generous flavours and richness . Delicate floral, passionfruit and fresh pineapple aromas lead to a luscious palate of honeysuckle and spicy citrus. The wine is balanced with a fresh crisp finish. The lively fruit sweetness is best served well chilled and is perfectly matched to spicy dishes, fresh fruits and cheese.

    chenin blanc, especially those from australia, is something i usually recommend to friends as a beginner's whte. the next bing sb.

    the relative approachability of this varietal makes it easier for novices to appreciate and enjoy.
