We always love to find a new KWV product at the LCBO, as it is always inexpensive, but worth so much more. This Chenin Blanc smells sweet with some tropical fruit hints. The grapes are sweet as well in the taste, but not syrupy at all, with some mild sourness. Nice crisp mouthfeel with a decent dry finish. Very easy to drink as always. Another great KWV product that helps the wallet and has no cheap problems.

This French Sparkling is 100% Chenin blanc grapes. Lots of yeast and apples in the nose at first. Then, some orange notes appear. We do not see the anise listed in the description, but maybe it comes out as it warms up. Pretty much the same for the taste with the yeast better balanced. Nicely sweet, sour and dry mouthfeel, and not syrupy. Gets better with time, but much better out there with less yeast.
