Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc and Viognier White Blend 2020 - California
Varietals: Chenin Blanc & Viognier
This kind of differential creates ideal ripening conditions where the fruit can develop lush, ripe flavors but retain enough natural acidity for excellent balance. Here, the loamy mineral-rich soils give Chenin Blanc a “honey” character, which is one of its defining attributes.
Pine Ridge Vineyards was founded as a Cabernet Sauvignon producer in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley. In 1995, our founder Gary Andrus and team crafted this unusual and delectable blend as an experimental bottling. The blend was originally sold in small quantities out of the tasting room in Napa Valley, but as more people tried it, it became one of our most beloved and popular wines. This unique marriage of two varietals that would never share the same bottle in their native France unites the crisp, honeyed fruit of Chenin Blanc with the plush body and juicy stone fruit notes of Viognier, for a wine that is both sophisticated and easy to enjoy.
