Term Definition
Chenin Blanc

Pronounced: Shen-in Blon

This white grape is grown in many regions (e.g. South Africa, California, France). It is probably at its best in the Loire (France) where it sometimes makes exceptionally good wines with honey characteristics, that can benefit from ageing. Chenin Blanc can be made into many styles from dry through to sweet. One of Chenin Blanc's finest incarnations is as Vouvray (Loire, France) which is made from Boyrytised grapes - sweet and long-living.
