Argentine Trio (Viognier, Riesling, Chardonnay) Wine Kit - RJS Cru Select
This smoothly robust blend highlights the apricot, yellow peach, pear and honeysuckle notes of Viognier, underscoring them with the acidity and minerality and crisp apple, lime and stone fruit from Riesling, wrapping it all with the pineapple, mango and papaya aromas of Chardonnay. Fresh and balanced yet lush, it complemented by hints of vanilla and a lingering finish of stone fruits.
Rich enough to verge on red wine pairings, this wine works well with heavy cream and mushroom sauces, rich seafood such as lobster or crab, or soft ripened cheeses like Brie.

Our favorite white wine. It hits that perfect spot between sweet and dry. It has the perfect crispness of the Viognier and the sweet after taste of the Riesling. The Chardonnay seems to blend it all together.
This turned out pretty well - it's super fruit-forward, but that would be expected with these ingredients. The kit instructions were good - I followed them 'mostly' - just adding a touch of tannin for my own personal taste. It's still a little hot - only bottled a month ago, but it's already mellowing and I expect in a few more months it will be very drinkable (just in time for summer). I would recommend this for a beginner (it's actually my 4th batch of wine - ever!) as I found the instructions easy, and the quality and flavor really good.
