Tim Atkin MW: Grape variety of the year: Chenin Blanc

Just to show that we are not alone in thinking that Chenin Blanc is a fantastic grape variety, Tim Atkin MW has just selected it as his grape variety of the year in today's Observer magazine.

'Still ludicrously undervalued, Chenin Blanc is responsible for some of the best white wines on the market, especially from South Africa and its native Loire Valley.

2007 Taste the Difference Chenin Blanc, Western Cape (£6.99, 12.5%, Sainsbury's). Tropical fruity Chenin from Ken Forrester, with a touch of oak for added complexity.

2005 Savennières L'Enclos, Eric Morgat (£13.95, 14.5%, The Wine Society, Concentrated, barrel-fermented Loire Chenin with honey, apple and vanilla notes.'
