I recently received a shipment of wine from NakedWines.com. One of the wines that were in this shipment is a wine that I have ordered in the past; Miriam Alexandra Chenin Blanc 2018. Now according to the Nakedwines site, “89% of 3,821would repurchase this wine”—like me. 

Chenin Blanc is believed to have established its beginnings in the Loire Valley. But other regions, including South Africa, the United States, and Argentina, are also significant producers.

I reordered a few additional bottles of this wine because the first bottle I shared with family and friends, and tasting notes were not taken. I like to give each wine a fair evaluation (whenever possible) and share my complete evaluation.

This Chenin Blanc is curated by a young winemaker by the name of Alex Farber. Farber previously worked Napa Valley, working in a winery. Through the Nakedwines program, she has embarked on the opportunity to make her own wines.


My Tasting Notes: Miriam Alexandra Chenin Blanc 2018

Scents of green apple, florals, hints of citrus. Initially, the nose is quite fruity. However, the overall smells remain very muted. This wine is an off-dry Chenin that offers muted green notes, with tastes of yellow apples, lemon curd (predominate), maybe a bit of herb, pineapple, and honey. It lacks the acidity that I tend to enjoy in a nice Chenin truly. The finish disappears quite quickly.

Certainly, this wine is a fun wine for those who love to explore. At $9.99 (Angel price), the wine is undoubtedly suited for festivities with friends and family, and won’t break the bank.

My friends and family emptied the bottle I shared. In short, ummm… that says something about the wine.
