Venge Vineyards Chardonnay Blend Napa Valley Champ des Fleurs Proprietary White 2008

Member Review by aronowm2:

Great summer white! I love it because you can easily identify the characteristics of each grape in this blend. There's the gorgeous floral aromatics of the Viognier, the zesty grassiness of the Sauvignon Blanc and the buttery goodness of the Chardonnay. Went great with chicken patties and corn on the cob, but goes great by itself too.

Bought this wine from Silenus just off Highway 29 at Oak Knoll in Napa. Winemaker's description apt: http://www.vengevineyards.com/venge/catalog/view_product.jsp?product_id=1045&cat_id=1005 Just delightful and refreshing, very pleasing to the nose (combo of SB and Viognier) and palate, but with good body and finish ? from the chard??? At $26 well worth it. Would give it 3 1/2 out of 5.
