2009 Swanky White
With a pale straw color, this blend of Swanky white boasts aromas of white peach, pineapple, lily blossom, and kiwi. This wine starts with good weight and flavors of nectarine, Bartlett pear, lemon curd, and red apple. Then turns a corner and finishes with flavors of tangerine sorbet, cotton candy, meyer lemon, and lime zest. This is a very versatile wine that has great balance of fruit notes with good integrated acids and a lingering finish.
This Swanky White blend is always fun to make. You get to dance the fine line of delicate tropical fruits, sweetness, structure, and acidity. This allows the blend to have a lot of diversity in regards to food pairings. The Viognier from Clarksburg and Mendocino brings peach, pineapple, and lemon curd notes. The Sauvignon Blanc from Clarksburg and Lodi adds mouthwatering acidity and zesty flavors. The Muscat Canelli from Clarksburg adds natural sweetness and floral aromas and flavors. To round out the mouthfeel and crisp apple finish, the Clarksburg Chenin Blanc adds subtle notes that help bring it all together. This is a great wine for appetizers, hot summer nights, or even with a dessert course of cheese and dried fruits.
This is a fun food wine that would pair wonderfully with Pan Asian cuisine. This would be great with Pad Thai, your favorite take out Chinese, or a great salad of shredded chicken over mixed greens with goat cheese and pistachios and an orange vinaigrette.
