2010 Pine Ridge Vineyards Chenin Blanc Viognier

The 2010 Chenin Blanc Viognier from Pine Ridge Vineyards is refreshing, vibrant and perfect for summer weather or lighter Asian foods.  Bursting with citrus fruits, there are kisses of honeysuckle, spring flowers and sweet ripe melon on the nose.  In the glass is a crisp and fruity wine that showcases a basket of citrus fruits, juicy cantelope and a hint of lavender to create a wine that is as clean as crisp spring linens.  Chenin Blanc is overlooked by many, and most people can't create a wine this wonderful at this price.  This wine is a blend of 79% Chenin Blanc and 21% Viognier.

About Pine Ridge Vineyards:
In the early 1990s, Pine Ridge crafted this unusual and delectable blend as an experimental bottling, creating one of our most beloved and popular wines.  This unique marriage of two varietals that would never share the same bottle in their native France unites the crisp, honeyed fruit of Chenin Blanc with the plush body, light floral aromas and juicy stone fruit notes of Viognier, for a wine that is both sophisticated and easy to enjoy.
