Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier 2018

Some wines are stimulating insofar as every sip makes you lust for another sip. And then there are wines that are satisfying because one quick sip is all it takes to put a smile on your face. Pine Ridge’s iconic Chenin Blanc Viognier blend is the sort of wine that falls squarely into the satisfying category. Every sip, every single one, will make you smile. Yes, it has a bit of lingering sugar on the finish. But it’s never cloying or desserty. Instead that modest kiss of Viognier sweetness serves as an exclamation point for all the wonderful fruit and acidity that Chenin Blanc is so famous for delivering. Striking notes of lemon verbena, honeysuckle nectar glistening in the sun, and freshly zested Meyer lemon tempt the tastebuds on the entry while nuances of candied ginger and cutie zest dance in perfect harmony on the finish. If there was a more perfect brunch wine then I certainly haven’t run across it yet. It will do things to your frittata or quiche that you didn’t think were possible. And that’s not all, pair this beauty with a warm bowl of Pad Thai or some deep fried coconut crusted shrimp for a food and wine tryst that is sure to leave an indelible impression on your palate. Seriously, folks, this is the kind of bottle that has so many applications that you really ought to snatch up a case. It is D-lish!
Food Pairing:
Crisp, off-dry Whites like the 2018 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier make a stunning companion for Asian dishes that rely on salt and heat to kick up the flavor. Pairing the Pine Ridge with a simple plate of takeout shrimp fried rice or Pad Thai will turn a basic meal into an event as the wine balances out the flavor of the dish and refreshes your palate with it’s crisp, zesty finish.

Domaine Francois Millet Sancerre Pinot Noir Rose 2018

The Loire Valley is as happy a home as Pinot Noir has anywhere in the world. This impressive specimen delivers the kind of impressively layered style that is sure to hold your interest by quickening your pulse with each passing swirl and sniff and sip! Buxom notes of wild strawberries and freshly grated orange zest mingle with intimations of fresh cream and briary herbs. Few grapes can match the ethereal quality of Pinot Noir and you’ll find that this example is classically elusive and difficult to pin down. The palate is zesty at first with raspberry and crushed cherry leading the charge. But then it turns a bit more creamy on the mid-palate with a touch of Orange Julius mingling with kirsch liqueur and strawberry hard candy to create a dynamic Rose that shows you different facets of its personality as it interacts with the air. The joy of this Pinot Noir being a Rose style is that the fruit isn’t so saturated that it gets in the way of the minerality on the finish. Instead the finish is sleek, playful, and full of character. A brilliant foil for salmon, scallops, or even swine, it is the kind of wine that is sure to find a happy home at your table again and again.
Food Pairing:
A hearty style of Rose like the 2018 Francois Millet Sancere really does want to be paired with food. Sure, you could sip this one alone just fine, but it’ll be even better alongside a classy meal. One of my favorites is to take some plump scallops and season them simply with cutie zest, grated ginger, salt, and a pinch of white sugar (to facilitate rapid browning) before searing them in a ripping hot skillet. I like to serve them nice and rare with a drizzle of sauce made from reduced cutie juice, grated ginger, and crushed red pepper flakes and then glossed up with a pat of butter off the heat just before service. Add a side salad with crumbled goat cheese, toasted sliced almonds, and fresh strawberries for a light but satisfying meal that will wow you!
