Spann Vineyards Chardonnay Blend Russian River Valley Chardonnay & Viognier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The apricot and peach aromas and tastes are pure Viognier with Chardonnay adding crisp acidity to make a well-balanced, food-friendly Viognier with good backbone for liveliness on your palate. The barrel fermented/barrel aged portion gives richness to this wine while the stainless steel fermented portion shows off the fresh fruit. We used older barrels because we don't want to overshadow the naturally wonderful Viognier aroma with too much assertive new oak.

Spann Vineyards:
Nestled among the majestic coastal redwoods of the Mayacamas Mountains, our steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. From this and select cool-climate vineyards throughout Sonoma County we craft limited quantities of European-style blended wines, strongly influenced by Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley and Tuscany.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Smooth, not too fruity; delicious. Paired well with grilled seafood and fresh veggies.
