7-16-12 Word On Wine One Burgundy and One South African Desert Wine!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This morning Mary and I review two white wine winners.  The first was a white Burgundy from St. Veran.   We reviewed the 2010 Domaine de la Croix Senaillet $19.  This nice example of old world Chardonnay has been around for a while and is just as elegant as it was years ago.  If you are looking for a moderate priced old world example of white Burgundy…go for it!

Our second wine was a desert wine from Swartland in South Africa.  The grape was Chenin Blanc and the price $33 for a half bottle.  We reviewed the 2011 Mullineux Chenin Blanc desert wine.  Granted $33 for a half bottle sounds like a lot but when compared to other desert wines this is no more expensive than similar examples from Germany or Canada.   Some great acidity to balance the sweetness made for a very satisfying experience.  Check out the show by clicking below!

Cheers!

One Burgundy, One Desert WIne!
