A South African Chenin Blanc is Very Good with Pork Normandy

We tried Pork Normandy from the Slow Cook Book. Lean pork is cubed and slow cooked with onions, Dijon mustard, garlic, celery, carrots, Rosemary, Bramley apples, dry cider, chicken stock, black peppercorns and double cream. We served this very tasty recipe with mashed potato.

To pair with the meal we opened a bottle of The Huguenot Chenin Blanc 2012, a 2014-06-08 20.32.42South African white from the Sunday Times Wine Club.

We tasted apples, creamy tropical fruits, a slight sweetness and a zesty finish.  We thought the wine was a very good match with the pork.
