The latest release of our Seyval Blanc features the firm forward acidity while maintaining a strong mid palate and latent finish. This bone-dry wine delights the palette with notes of grapefruit, green apple, hay and melon.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of pear, lime, and grapefruit. Flavors of apple, citrus and candied almond.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard sits at ~850ft with a slight northern slope. Soil is primarily decomposed green stone and montmorillonite clay. 2/3 of the vines were 3 year old, 1/3 of the vines were 17 years old.
Production Notes
Whole cluster pressing, juice settled over night in tank. 1/2 the juice was racked and fermented in barrel the other 1/2 was racked and fermented in tank. Once fermentation complete, the two lots were blended together and aged on chardonnay lees for 6 months.
Winemaker Notes
2015 was a good vintage in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the growing season. The fruit came in with good phenolics, and balanced chemistry. Whites were picked about 2 weeks earlier than previous years, but with optimal ripeness.
