Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc - Viognier 2007
Pine Ridge winery was the first CA winery to develop this blend (80% chenin blanc and 20% viognier) several years ago and the 2007 is excellent. It is a medium bodied wine with nice pear, melon and citrus aromas and pear, green apple and citrus taste. There is a hint of grapefruit on the back with nice refreshing acidity. This is a great dry wine for a salad, or main course of pork or an asian inspired dish. We served it with a Thai curry dish and it stood up well. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate gave this a 90 point rating. I may have to go slightly higher. This is a $10-$12 wine that is better than some of the $20-$25 wines I have had. We highly recommend this wine, especially at this price.
