Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (88)

Review date: April 3, 2017

Wine Review: This pale straw colored white wine from Pine Ridge opens with a fragrant grapefruit bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, brisk and refreshing. The flavor profile is a yellow grapefruit with notes of minerality and lemon. I also detected some hints of pineapple towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for quite a while. This is a nice summer wine to be enjoyed with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright and enticing, the latest bottling of our exceptional blend offers a lively bouquet of mouthwatering honeydew melon, juicy pomelo and sweet starfruit aromas that dance with hints of soft white florals and spun sugar. The crisp palate leads with ripe fruit flavors of pineapple, lychee, Meyer lemon and fuzzy white peach that linger through the refreshing finish, balanced by vibrant acidity and subtle hints of white tea and clean mineral. Try Chenin Blanc + Viognier with a flavorful Thai curry, a sushi dish, such as a spicy tuna roll, or seared halibut.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
