Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier 2021
|Region||California, Central Valley, Clarksburg|
Crisp, bright, and vivacious, CB+V 2018 is an aromatic white blend boasting a bouquet of honeysuckle and orange blossoms along with tropical fruit aromas of lychee and pineapple complemented by green apple, lemon, and grapefruit. The entry is bright and fresh, exhibiting flavors of fresh ginger, ruby grapefruit, lemon curd, and Granny Smith apples. While this is a fresh, juicy wine, it has an incredible midpalate weight with zesty acidity carrying the flavors through to the lengthy finish. This versatile wine pairs well with a number of dishes, from light salads to seafood, and most notably with foods with a hint of spiciness-its subtle sweetness provides balance alongside a touch of heat. It's the perfect pour for the start of an evening with appetizers such as goat cheese, radishes, and olives. Also try Chenin Blanc + Viognier with a flavorful Thai curry, a frittata with sweet onions and ricotta, or a shrimp and avocado tostada.
Light floral aromas and bright, ripe tropical-fruit flavors give this wine a sunny personality. It emphasizes freshness, offering good acidity behind pineapple, melon and banana flavors.
