A Wine Pairing for Hurricane Sandy: Pepi Chenin Blanc/Viognier

As we are watching the rains continue and wind blow, we decided to celebrate Hurricane Sandy’s arrival with a Chenin Blanc /Viognier blend by Pepi. We were first introduced to Pepi at the Wine Bloggers Conference in Portland during August. Pepi is a California winery that specializes in white wines. The Chenin Blanc/Viognier is a winner. As the trees with leaves still on are rocking back in forth in the wine gusts, we are enjoying a delicious blend. The light yellow wine has a floral aroma. We noticed honeysuckle, pineapple and peaches on the taste and there is a crisp finish with lingering fruit. Virginia Viognier is a favorite of ours and this California blend with Viognier is also very tasty. The wine would pair well with a salad, but we are enjoying it in the late afternoon as the hurricane is showing its punch.

At the Wine Bloggers Conference we tasted the Pepi Sauvignon Blanc. We recall the wine had citrus aroma and taste especially grapefruit. A week ago we tasted the Pepi 2011 Pinot Grigio. Citrus was the predominant aroma and taste.
