Pine Ridge Chenin/Viognier 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2013 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of succulent white nectarine, candied pineapple, green fig and subtle grapefruit. The crisp and slightly off-dry flavor profile lasts well through the clean and refreshing finish." -Winery

Ripe pear with floral notes on the nose. Nice acidity and ripe fruit sweetness with a clean soft finish. Paired well with the spice meatballs my daughter brought for Christmas.

This extraordinary blend enchants the nose with a refreshing bouquet of succulent fruit and delicate florals, opening with juicy honeydew melon, sweet white peach, and ripe green plum touched with hints of spiced white tea and soft apple blossom. The vivacious palate leads with crisp yellow grapefruit, fresh-cut pineapple and sumptuous honeyed pear notes. Lush and lively fruit flavors linger through the clean and slightly off-dry finish.

Pine Ridge Vineyards in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley has been growing Chenin Blanc since they started out. It’s always been a good wine for them with nice acidity and citrus flavors but they discovered that when they blend in Viognier it takes on a whole new dimension. Now the wine is wildly popular and gets rave reviews every vintage. The blend is 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier. It shows bright tropical fruit flavors like mango and pineapple along with tangy citrus that's bright and lively. This 2013 earned a Gold Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. The 2012 scored 90 points from the Wine Advocate for the fourth consecutive year!
