Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier 2020
|Region||California, Central Valley, Clarksburg|
This unique marriage of two varietals that would never share the same bottle in their native France unites the crisp, honeyed fruit of Chenin Blanc with the plush body, light floral aromas and juicy stone fruit notes of Viognier, for a wine that is both sophisticated and easy to enjoy. With its balanced acidity, this versatile wine pairs well with a number of dishes, from light salads to seafood to, most notably, foods with a hint of spiciness, its subtle sweetness provides balance alongside a touch of heat. Try Chenin Blanc + Viognier with a flavorful Thai curry, a sushi dish, such as a spicy tuna roll, or seared halibut.
This medium-bodied wine tastes quite ripe and fruity and feels rich on the palate. Banana, melon and kiwi flavors vie for attention, and they're nicely wrapped in a smooth texture.
Charming, featuring chamomile and orange zest flavors that mingle with lime and pomelo notes on a juicy frame. A hint of ripe peach shows on the spicy finish. Chenin Blanc and Viognier. Drink now. 84,000 cases made.
