Wine Wednesdays - Pine Ridge 2013 Chenin Blanc + Viognier

This week, a fun new white blend for you!  I picked up this Pine Ridge on the recommendation from the clerk at Bottlerocket, recommended as an "easy drinker" it was different and tasty!  The nose was overwhelmingly honey+vanilla+white flowers.  The first sip was slightly effervescent, light, bright, acidic, with a pleasant balance of citrus, more honey, vanilla, and juicy peach.  The blend of crisp Cheninc Blanc balances the Viognier which can sometimes be too sweet for my taste.


I paired this wine with fresh grilled shrimp, veggies, and fingerling potatoes with shallots and a dijon/balsamic dressing.  Why does everything taste better off the grill???

 

And for dessert, grilled nectarines with fresh thyme.  Savoring every last moment of summer!!
