Jauma Giggles off-dry Chenin Blanc 2011
When I was thinking of Chenin Balnc my thoughts immediately went to this will taste crisp. Well it doesn't. The wine comes across as being very simple and sweet due to the amazing amounts of volatile acidity (VA). The VA kills any other flavour and just makes the wine tiring to drink. From the mid palate you get sugar mixed with VA which is refreshing but still not the most pleasant to drink. What brings up the score is a nice hit of lemon on the back palate.
What do you think a plastic cork says about the quality or longevity of the wine?
Wicked packaging for the Jauma range.
