Summer Sips Duo
Includes 2023 Virginia Governor's Cup Gold Medal Winner - Chardonnay
Enjoy this duo while celebrating all that is summer!
The Viognier grape was almost extinct in the 1960's, with only 35 acres growing in France, but Virginia has played a role in its dynamic comeback. While the color and aroma may suggest a sweet wine, Viogniers are predominantly dry and are known for producing heavy aromatics with low acidity. Our 2021 vintage is fruit-forward with a creamy feel and light acidity, making it delightful to sip or pair with food.
Nose: honeysuckle, jasmine, chamomile, fig
Palate: lemon zest, cantaloupe, green guava, white peppercorn

Viognier 2021 - 94% Viognier, 6% Petit Manseng
We see our 2021 Chardonnay as easy, balanced, and extremely food versatile. It shows aromas of hyacinth and orange blossom, with subtle hints of golden apple, lavender, and jasmine. It finishes with a light acidity that livens things up. This is a Chardonnay that is always dependable and will stay at the top of our favorites list!
