Australian Chenin Blanc: 15 of the best bottles available today

Australian Chenin Blanc
Western Australia’s Chenin Blancs are proving themselves on a global stage.

Chenin Blanc has come of age in Australia. Vineyards and palates have matured, demand for growers’ fruit has increased, new plantings are on the rise, and producers are striving to craft wines that are complex, thought-provoking, ageworthy and diverse in style. Wines that can easily claim their place on the global stage.

The greatest examples are varied in style, but they all share a seamlessness, an exciting tension, and a persistent finish. From briny freshness through to layers of texture; some show lees work and funk, others polish and opulence, and many are glossy, long and lithe.
