Wine Review: This pale yellow wine from Pine Ridge has been very consistent over the years. It opens with a very attractive Viognier driven apricot like bouquet with a hint of green apple. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, with some roundness, but yet crisp acidity. The flavor profile is a forward tangy lemon lime with notes of honeydew melon. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This wine will appeal to readers who like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Best to serve it cool, not cold. It will liven up a grilled swordfish with lemon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Floral and sweet on the nose, the 2007 Chenin Blanc-Viognier exhibits fragrant aromas of pear, lychee and melon, with a delicate touch of grapefruit, lime and mixed citrus. Sweet, bright flavors of lively citrus and pear are offered up along with a supple texture. The slightly off-dry finish is clean and crisp, marked with notes of red grapefruit. Enjoy now or cellar for two years.
