The grapes for Chenin Blanc are sourced from the Clarksburg appellation, the Gem of the Delta. It is an appellation that shows a great affinity for Chenin Blanc. The climate has a moderately long growing season and benefits from the maritime influence of the Sacramento River. The Viognier is sourced from Lodi, a classic Mediterranean climate with warm days and cool nights. Natural air-conditioning is provided by the San Joaquin/Sacramento River Delta breezes and produces grapes with natural acidity. Rhone varieties like Viognier adapt well to this exciting appellation.
After the grapes are crushed, the press wine is blended with the free-run juice to increase palate weight. The juice is inoculated with two special yeast strains to maintain the fruity characteristics and then fermented cold. To retain and highlight the fruit freshness of Chenin Blanc and Viognier, the wine is fermented and aged in 100 percent stainless steel.
Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier is crisp, bright, and vivacious! The Chenin Blanc aromatics bring citrus characters of lime, orange blossom, honeysuckle, ginger, and melon. The Viognier aromatics are heavier on stone fruit of nectarine and peach with hints of floral characters. The mouthfeel is clean and crisp with no oak or malolactic fermentation. The slight residual sugar and acid are balanced to add some mouthfeel but still create a crisp finish.
This versatile wine pairs well with several 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 with a flavorful Thai curry, a frittata with sweet onions and ricotta, or a shrimp and avocado tostada.
