Songs to play when drinking these Chenin Blancs from South Africa


A growing body of scientific evidence points to the fact that what people taste when drinking a wine can be influenced by the music that happens to be playing at the time.

Some say that listening to powerful, heavy music makes wine seem richer and heavier, where as a Beethoven’s Für Elise might disguise the taste of an inferior wine.

With research suggesting that any wine, regardless of the price point or quality, can be influenced to a greater or lesser extent by music, all we need to figure out what song to pick to enhance the tasting experience.

If Chenin Blanc was a song, what would it sound like? Instead of embarking on a hyper-intellectual scientific discourse on Chenin Blanc, the Breedekloof Makers a band of like-minded winemakers crafting small quantities of terroir-specific Chenin Blanc from grapes grown in the Breedekloof Wine Valley in South Africa – decided to introduce their new vintages by matching it with a song.
