In South Africa, Chenin is commonly referred to as Steen. This example has a slight petrol aroma initially, but it quickly fades with the open air to reveal a rich combination of honey and melon. Somewhat astringent straight out of the bottle but again, it vastly improves with some breathing time to become quite smooth with a lovely clean finish. Decant 1hour prior to serving.
