Chenin Blanc Pine Ridge Californie Vin Blanc Vin Tranquille Etats-Unis Californie Vin de Table Pine Ridge Winery Napa 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

ORIGIN: The fruity floral signature of Chenin Blanc and the fragrant bouquet of Viognier make up this unique bottling. Pine Ridge was the first California winery to develop this original blend. VINEYARD: The Chenin Blanc grapes were sourced from Salman Farms, the Herzog Company and Wilson Vineyards, in the moderate river delta region of Clarksburg. Bear Creek Winery in Lodi provided the Viognier grapes this year. WINEMAKING: Harvest is determined for the Chenin grapes when the pear and melon flavors have developed, usually around 19-20 degrees Brix. The Viognier read more... read more... is ripe much later, usually around 25 to 26 degrees Brix when the pink grapefruit, lychee, and tropical flavors develop. The grapes are harvested at night, and the juice is cold fermented in stainless steel tanks at 40- 45 degrees Fahrenheit over the course of 8-10 weeks to enhance the natural fruity, floral aromas. A major factor in creating this wine is selecting the moment of harvest. Since the sugar is low, the danger is picking too early and getting green, unripe flavors or waiting too long and having too much alcohol. The grapes, therefore, are carefully monitored to determine the precise moment that will yield a wine with the proper balance of a fruity, refreshing character and low alcohol content. Chenin Blanc-Viognier exhibits fragrant aromas of pear, lychee and melon, with a delicate touch of grapefruit, lime and mixed citrus. Sweet, bright flavors of lively citrus and pear are offered up along with a supple texture. The slightly off-dry finish is clean and crisp, marked with notes of red grapefruit. Enjoy now or cellar for two years.

I really enjoyed this wine. Complemented a light chicken dinner very well. It is also a very easy wine to just drink at the end of the day.

It shows hints of both varieties on the nose, honeydew melon attributable to Chenin and light, delicate wildflowers suggesting Viognier. Fresh, lively flavor, a hint of prickly, barely carbonated 'petillance' adds a refreshing vibe. Crisp white fruit and zippy lemon-lime last and last in a long, clean finish. A wonderful summer sipper, pleasantly slurpable at just 12.2% alcohol.
