Chicken Dinner White

Varietal: White Blend

Tasting Notes:
Chicken Dinner White is a crisp blend of Riesling, Roussanne, and Muscat Blanc. Bright tropical aromas lead to classic Idaho flavors of white peach, apricot, and honeysuckle. A touch of minerality, courtesy of our volcanic soils, adds even more dimension to this crowd pleasing off-dry wine.

Pair with: Sushi, fish tacos, or an appetizer with goat cheese drizzled with honey.

Growing Season Notes A cool, wet spring led to a slow start of the 2019 growing season. The mild summer provided consistent, even ripening without extreme heat. An early frost brought an abrupt end to the season in Mid-October. But lower yields and a perfect summer brought out a complex, balanced and nuanced 2019 vintage.

Growing Season Notes 2018 was an exceptional growing season with bud break in mid April, and a gradual temperature increases to flower set and fruit set. The growing season was long with gradient temperatures allowing fruit to develop without extreme heat stress. Harvest began in early October and a long Indian summer assured that all fruit was ripe with nice acidity.

Growing Season Notes 2016 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 Notes 2015 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.
