Terra D'Oro 2014 Chenin Blanc/Viognier, Clarksburg
A vibrant, refreshing blend, grapes for the Terra d’Oro Chenin Blanc & Viognier are handpicked from select vineyards. The Chenin Blanc, a versatile white grape variety that can range from dry to very sweet and typically offers high acidity, comes from the Clarksburg appellation in the Sacramento Delta. This region is well-known for producing Chenin Blanc thanks to the rich soils and maritime influence. The Viognier is from the Voteau Vineyard in Amador County. The high elevation, warm days and cool nights bring intense varietal character to the fruit. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 90 points saying
"This dry, light-bodied wine smells vivid and fresh, like sliced peaches and canteloupe. It tastes equally fruity and ripe, backed by good acidity to keep it mouthwatering. Notable richness in the texture helps the flavors linger on the finish."
