Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier 2012
90 points Robert Parker: A consistent winner in the value sweepstakes... 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier. This dry white offers a stunning aromatic display of honeydew melons, spring flowers, pears and cantaloupe. The sumptuous perfume is followed by a wine with crisp, zesty acids, medium body and abundant purity as well as freshness. The Viognier component no doubt pushes this delightful white toward an exotic, tropical fruit- flavored style... This beauty is meant to be consumed over the next year. (Aug 2013)
Christmas 2013, Binny's. I don't believe I got a sip of the first of two bottles of this wine. This happens a lot with white wine at our house in the summer. Mary requests a white and over the next few days it disappears. Nothing wrong with that, just tough to say anything about it or rate it. Maybe the next bottle will get to pass by my lips. Less than 50/50 chance. Got a glass from the third bottle, really nice flavor. Fourth bottle consumed at Thanksgiving 2015.
External Reviews for Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier
Floral and sweet on the nose, the 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. 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier
