30 Days of Local Wine – Day Six: Mastronardi Estate Winery, 2010 Viognier Pinot Blanc

30 Days of Local Wine

The Mastronardi Estate Winery 2010 Viognier Pinot Blanc is a blend of two beautifully light aromatic wines. The blend demonstrates spicy floral perfumes, lemon zest and white melon. The flavours are of vibrant lemon grass and lime with undertones of pear peel with a long fresh finish. The Wine Trail Traveller states that the Viognier Pinot Grigio’s taste “offered rose and lemon grass nuances. The finish was crisp and fruity.”

Here’s Laura Schiefer of Mastronardi’s favourite recipe for this wine:

Cucumber Dill Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast


  • A hearty bed of mixed greens
  • Red onion
  • Sunflower seeds


  • 1/2 English cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Greek yorgurt
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped Fresh Dill
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Mix ingredients in a small bowl and toss into salad greens. Grill chicken breast, let it cool before cutting into strips and placing on salad. Serve with the 2010 Mastronardi Viognier Pinot Blanc.
