Pine Ridge, Clarksburg, Chenin Blanc+Viognier

£23.95

Crisp, bright, and lively, this wine boasts aromas of honeysuckle, orange blossom, nectarine, white peach, and ginger spice. On the palate, there are ripe fruit flavours of tangerine, lime, lemon curd alongside more herbal notes of lemongrass and ginger. It is medium-bodied, with refreshing acidity and a hint of lime on the long, round finish. The wine was fermented and afterwards aged in stainless-steel tanks in order to retain the pure varietal fruit character in the final wine.

Ideal with light salads, seafood, with foods with a hint of spiciness (its subtle sweetness provides balance alongside a touch of heat) or with appetizers such as goat cheese, radishes, and olives.

The Chenin Blanc comes from the Clarksburg appellation, referred to as the “Gem of the Delta”, which is located in the Sacramento River delta. This means that it is fairly warm with an almost constant breeze which helps to retain freshness and acidity in the grapes. The soils tend to be deep clay with excellent water holding capacity. The trellising is bi-lateral cordon. The viognier is sourced from Lodi, which has a classic Mediterranean climate, with warm days and cool nights. The San Joaquin/Sacramento River delta provides cooling breezes.
