Big Cork Vineyards Maryland Viognier Chenin Blanc, 2020

This is a blend (75% Viognier/25% Chenin Blanc) that I have never encountered before. But it works nicely. Viognier provides the honeysuckle beauty while Chenin Blanc adds body, substance and acidity.

Very light color. Beautiful floral/fresh fruit scents typical of Viognier. Melon, peaches and stone fruits on the palate, more like Chenin Blanc. Plump but not at all sweet. No sign of new oak seasoning, but it may have had some lees contact. Goes well with fondue but would also work as an aperitif.
