The Delicious Monster White 2023 is a $5.99 Trader Joe’s US exclusive. McGregor Winery (established in 1948) produced this wine from grapes grown in the Robertson Valley of South Africa. It is one of their portfolio wines and not a wine made specifically for Trader Joe’s/

The Delicious Monster White 2023

The McGregor website showed the selling price as 83 Rands which is $4.50 in American currency, so we get this wine in the States for a buck fifty more.

The Delicious Monster name is “inspired” by a local fruit salad plant named Monstera Deliciosa.

The blend for The Delicious Monster White 2023 is 60% Chenin Blanc, 20% Muscat, and 20% Chardonnay.

They do not go into detail on the vineyards and the wine production, but I would guess this is a young wine made to be consumed in the first couple of years after the release. So this should be a bright, juicy wine. The alcohol content is mild at 12.5%.

The Delicious Monster White 2023 Tasting Notes

The color is a very pale wheat yellow. The nose is husky with melon, lemon, pear, grapefruit, and a solid dose of tropical fruit. The The Delicious Monster White 2023 is smooth and balanced.

This White blend tastes like white peach, guava, lime, lemon curd, a slap of spice, and apple. The mid-palate shows juicy, ripe nectarine, and dried pineapple.

The acidity is very well-balanced and it allows the flavors to completely unfold.

The Summary

  • The Delicious Monster White 2023 isn’t a monster but does do an excellent job in the delicious department.
  • A great summer White wine, at $5.99 this bottle is a steal.
