Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of almond, apple tart, honey. Flavors of citrus, pear, and honeysuckle.
Vineyard Notes
Heavy shale and limestone slopes with south/southeast aspect between 1000'-1200' elevation. Dry farmed using sustainable practices. Limestone rocks are piled under all the vines providing light reflection on to the fruit and warming during the night time hours.
Production Notes
Our Reserve Chardonnay is fermented and aged for 11 months in French oak barrels. 20% new oak, partial malo lactic fermentation.
Winemaker Notes
2017 was a good growing season in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the season. The fruit came in with good phenolics and balanced chemistry. Red fruit came in with small berries, due to the lack water, resulting in rich, tannic wines. Whites had concentrated flavor and acid.
