Chicken Dinner White

Varietal: White Blend

Tasting Notes:
This blend of Riesling, Muscat Blanc and Roussanne is pale straw color and tropical fruit aromas are the introduction to this off-dry white blend. Flavors of green apple, apricot and honeysuckle crate a crisp yet balanced mid-palate and finish.

Pair with: Apricot and walnut topped baked brie, spicy Asian noodles with ginger dressing, fish tacos and mango salsa and of course chicken!

Growing Season Notes2016 was a growing season straight from the textbooks. Bud-break arrived early and temperatures gradually increased month by month all while avoiding temperatures above 100 degrees. Added to the generous growing conditions our Fall cooled gradually allowing grapes to maintain acidity and moderate sugar accumulation.

Growing Season Notes2015 yielded limited quantity but high quality fruit in the Snake River AVA. Many vineyards experienced rapid temperature decline in November of 2014 impacting the dormancy of the vines. However, certain varietals were unaffected. Riesling was truly a shining star of this vintage, responding well to the early spring and warm summer days and cool nights that Idaho is known for. The varietal displayed bright fruit aromas and lively acidity. Snake River Valley AVA Riesling makes up the majority of this blend and the Muscat Blanc and Viognier were sourced in the Columbia Valley AVA of Washington.
