Food Pairings for Porter Creek Viognier Russian River Valley Timbervine Ranch
It's rare that I'm absolutely stunned by a white wine. I've found most viogniers to be lacking depth, a little bit too heavy on the citrus, and perhaps too acidic. The 2007 Porter Creek Viogner has complexity, isn't grapefruity, and isn't acidic... but is still light and has a beautifully clean finish. It would pair beautifully with simply prepared chicken or the lighter game birds, or with a non-fishy fish: I'd love to try it paired with mahi/snapper and a mango salsa. Or I'd be happy to have a glass (or two) on its own. And as far as I could tell from the barrel tasting I attended last weekend... the 2008 Viognier promises to follow the same path.
I first had the Porter Creek Viognier at Thanksgiving and thought it was nice. 6 months later, I had it with a grilled chicken breast and mixed green salad with a champagne vinaigrette. The wine was outstanding. There was something about the crisp clean fruitiness of the viognier that married the olive oil from the dressing perfectly. The crisp fruit is big and powerful. It remained full in the mouth and finished clean.
