Our second vintage of the Black Label Chardonnay-Viognier blend! a blend of 75% Chardonnay and 25% Viognier, the blend was aged 10 months in neutral French oak lending hints of toast. A fruit-forward wine, this blend finishes completely dry and is well-paired with risotto.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of lemon meringue, beeswax and cotton candy. Flavors of cantaloupe, melon and pineapple.
Vineyard Notes
Heavy shale and limestone slopes with south/southeast aspect between 1000'-1200' elevation. Dry farmed using sustainable practices.
Production Notes
The Chardonnay and Viognier lots were fermented and aged separately in tanks with gentle lees stirring to add richness to the wines. The lots were then blended together in tank and barreled back down for ageing in neutral French oak.
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.
