2012 The Royal Chenin - WP 2 1/2 Stars

"Washington Post - 2.5 StarsThis is a tremendous little white wine, crisp and refreshing, yet exuberant with fruit. Steen is a South African name for Chenin Blanc, and this wine conveniently puts both names on the label to avoid confusion. Ideal by itself or with casual foods, it comes with a warning; You will want to open a second one. Fortunatly, the price is accomodating. South African chenin blanc may be one of the world's best white wine values, and this wine shows why"- Washington Post (2012), ** ½

2013 The Royal Chenin - WA 90 PTS

Wine Advocate - 90 PTS"One of the greatest buys I have tasted this year is this under $10, 100% Chenin Blanc from the Western Cape. A super flowery-scented nose includes notions of ripe honeydew melons and pears. This medium-weight, fresh, fruity, crisp, dry, textbook Chenin Blanc will provide immense pleasure over the next 12 months."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #208, August 2013), 90 pts

2014 The Royal Chenin Blanc - BTI - 90 PTS + GOLD MEDAL

bti"Yellow color. Aromas of peach, honey, wool sweater, and white raspberry with a round, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, layered, medium-length nectarine, roasted pineapple, dried honey, and sweet lime finish with no tannins and no oak. The perfect wine when you are in the mood for plenty of lush fruit and complexity that also remains balanced thru the dry fruit finish."
