This wine is “all Chardonnay”. Fermented in tank to retain its full fruit character, and not allowed through the secondary ML fermentation so as to retain as much natural acidity as possible. The end result is a mouthful of pure Chardonnay. Perfect for a warm summer evening, or paired with medium to light culinary dishes. Try it with Mussels!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of citrus zest, lightly buttered toast, and damp cotton. Flavors of peach, pear and honeyed almond.
Vineyard Notes
Heavy shale and limestone slopes with south/southeast aspect between 1000'-1200' elevation. Dry farmed using sustainable practices.
Production Notes
The juice was divided into to 2 lots. 70% was fermented in tank at 58F. 30% was fermented in neutral French oak barrels. The lots were allowed to age on the lees for 6 months independently then blended together.
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.
