Wine Review: This straw yellow wine blend from CA opens with a pleasant green apple bouquet with a lemon and tangerine. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty mild lemon with notes of nicely integrated minerality. I also detected a dash of white pepper and a hint of lime. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger nicely after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with shrimp scampi or coconut shrimp with a mango dipping sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Chenin Blanc-Viognier is an appetizing blend of these two under-appreciated grapes. The Chenin Blanc supplies the backbone for the wine and displays sweet honeysuckle notes, while the Viognier allows for spicy expressions of peach and other fruit nectars. Crisp and clean, this wine has a refreshing and spritzy finish.
