Welcome to the next installment of the Weekly Wine Quiz!
Based on feedback from ever-so-vocal-and-intelligent YOU, I will not be supplying the answer directly in the post – you will need to tune back in later in the comments section for the answer. So you can put your answer in the comments for potential bragging rights later (not that you’d gloat… too much… right?). Anyway… here ’tis!

A. Chenin Blanc is known as Steen in S. Africa.
Not much response here or via twitter & fb, but ALL of those who did chime in were correct!
Answer: A. Chenin Blanc
Chenin Blanc, the principal grape of Vouvray in France's Loire Valley, has a plethora of alternative names, and is widely referred to as Steen in South Africa. Most of its other synonyms (Quefort, Pineau de la Loire, Plant de Breze, Blanc de Anjou…) are used almost exclusively within France itself.
Susan – bingo! :)
