2016 AVERY'S BLEND
Dubbed the "Ladies Wine", this is a classy blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Viognier. Specially selected fruit sourced from our own vineyard as well as two neighbors serve as the backbone for Avery's Blend. If you're looking for a smoother, full bodied white wine lacking the nutty, oaky, buttery characteristics of many Chardonnays then this is the pairing for you.
Avery's Blend is named after the eldest of our children. This harmonious wine combines the refreshing pear, apple and crisp lemon-lime flavors of Pinot Gris and Riesling with intense honeydew, mineral and grapefruit flavored Pinot Blanc. To finish of this Chablis style blend we add Viognier, a full-bodied, intensely aromatic grape loaded with exotic floral fragrances and flavors of delicious stone fruits.
Serving Avery's Blend only at the winery, we have created a gorgeous alternative which has been favorable to the Chardonnay crowd looking for something different to try. In addition to the traditional white wine food pairings, Avery's Blend has been a hit with the salads (in particular the vinaigrette's) as well as spicy dishes and rich sauces. The body from the Viognier helps cut through heavy stuff while the lively acidity from the Blanc, Gris and Riesling help balance off a delightful finish leaving you ready for more.
