Kleindal Chenin Blanc 2012 Robertson



Lesley got a voucher deal for a new Japanese restaurant in Malahide called Wasabi so we arranged to meet Amy & Ross for an early Dinner.

Wasabi has been open about 10 months, about the same amount of time this Chenin Blanc has been sitting in the bottle, and served a tasty offering of Sushi amongst other delights.

The Chenin Blanc was light and complimented the meal quite well but I thought it was quite mellow – unremarkable, unstructured and lacked the edge – crispness and greenness – of a young Cape CB. Disappointing at 23 euro on a streamlined wine list.

We enjoyed our first visit to Wasabi with pleasant service and tasty food despite the early banging of metal spoons on wooden table and will revisit in person or through take-away.
