2007 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier

SKU #1035987

90 points in the Wine Advocate's "Value Issue": "2007 Chenin Blanc/Viognier is a beauty, very perfumed (flowers, melons, tropical fruits), medium-bodied, super pure, with no oak and a dry, crisp finish. Drink it over the next year." (08/08) And, according to Wine Spectator: "Offers pretty jade blossom and peach aromas, with subtle green apple, pebble and lime flavors. Drink now." (07/08) A truly fabulous California blend - combing the best of the Loire and the best of the Rhône to create a wine as light and sun-drenched as the Golden State. White flowers and sweet exotic lychee fruit complement subtler citrus aromas on this chenin blanc-viognier blend. Bright on the palate, fresh pear and citrus flavors are framed by clean, refreshing acidity. The wine's off-dry style lends a touch of sweetness to the otherwise grapefruit-kissed, crisp finish.

Very good citrus with light spice aromas medium body and not too acidic. Opens up in the glass and gets more complex. A touch of sweetness that women who like lighter, less austere white wines will love. An outstanding value and with a screwcap opening.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
