Pine Ridge Vineyards Sparkling Chenin Blanc + Viognier
Twenty-five years ago, Pine Ridge crafted an unusual and delectable blend as an experimental bottling, and created one of our most beloved and popular wines. This unique marriage of two varieties 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. The still wine version of CB+V has inspired a sparkling wine made from 100 percent Chenin Blanc with a splash of Viognier in the dosage.
Crisp, bright, and vivacious, Sparkling CB+V is an aromatic wine boasting a bouquet of pear, green apple, and honeydew melon complemented by lime, nectarine, lemongrass, and apricot. The entry is bright and fresh, exhibiting flavors of green apples, lemon, lime, and lychee. The wine has beautifully balanced, crisp acidity, with a refreshing and slightly creamy note on the midpalate. The fine bubbles lift the aromas and flavors and carry them to the finish.
