Coriole 2017 Chenin Blanc

The perfect summer quaffer, sipping this is like biting into a cool Granny Smith apple straight from the fridge. This is an absolute ripper for under $20 and won a recent gold medal at the National Wine Show. Chenin blanc, which thrives in the Loire Valley in France, is, most unusually, the primary white grape variety at Coriole in McLaren Vale and was first planted in 1977. This is fresh, vibrant and aromatic with a zingy, zesty palate that has plenty of brisk acidity. Versatile with food, this would pair with anything from spicy Asian dishes to a summer salad. If you haven't tried chenin blanc before you'd be a fool not to sample this. $18.
