Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chenin Blanc and Viognier blend opens with a pear and ginger bouquet with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced yellow grapefruit with notes of lime. I also detected hints of almond and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger for quite a while. This wine would pair well with pan-fried trout with butter and lemon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Crisp, bright, and vivacious, CBV 2016 is an aromatic white blend boasting a bouquet of orange blossom, honeysuckle, tropical fruit, and citrus. The refreshing palate reveals crisp lemon-lime and yuzu joined by luscious flavors of apricot, white peach, nectarine, and exotic tropical flavors of guava, pineapple, and mango. Flint minerality and balanced acidity carry through the clean, lingering finish. This versatile wine pairs well with a number of dishes, from light salads to seafood.
