All Wines

We really enjoy drier wines that have layers of complexity in their flavor and a nice, lingering finish, but we also appreciate that some people enjoy lighter, sweeter wines.  For production, we’re working with the award winning Michael Shaps of VA Wineworks; with his expertise and our vision, we have cultivated a line-up that is sure to please nearly every palate.

2015 Chardonnay

Made from a blend of grapes from Honah Lee (Gordonsville) and Carter's Mountain (Charlottesville) Vineyards, our Chardonnay was fermented in neutral French oak, has undergone a full malolactic fermentation, and aged for 18 months all to result in a wine that has a rich, creamy feel. With a nose of citrus blossom, and a hint of strawberry, this medium bodied wine has flavors of soft linen, granny smith apples, and tart pears. Roast chicken, grilled or roasted vegetables, and nutty cheeses would all be perfect pairings for this creamy, crisp Chardonnay.

2016 Viognier

This crisp and refreshing Viognier was fermented in stainless steel tanks and bottled early to retain fresh fruit and floral aromas and flavors. Supported by its pleasant acidity and lingering finish, it pairs well with soft cheeses, seafood, and chicken.

2017 Petit Manseng

Barreled in a neutral French, our Petit Manseng (grapes from Honah Lee Vineyards in Gordonsville) has a creamy, citrusy nose with a touch of coconut. Fully charged with smells and flavors of tropical fruit, pineapple explodes in the mouth mid-palate. Although often served as a dessert wine, this grape has made itself right at home in our drier, tangier version. A perfect pair for spicy asian dishes and blackened fish, the balanced acidity and lingering finish make this a wine to remember.

2017 White Brix

A blend of four aromatic white grapes (31% Chardonnel, 31% Pinot Gris, 23% Traminette, and 7% Petit Manseng), this slightly sweet wine is easy to sip on. The luscious nose is floral with notes of green apple and laden with honeysuckle. Bursting with flavors of pear and apple, along with the pleasant acidity, pairs it well with cheeses, cured meats, briny oysters, and just about any other seafood.

2017 Rosé

This year’s Rosé is sourced mainly from Carter’s Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and blended with a variety of other red grapes from local vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon was processed in the direct press style, with maceration lasting less than 2 days, while the juice from the blend of other grapes was bled off in a method called saignée style. It is filled with delicious aromas and flavors of strawberry and vanilla with delicate hints of peach; it’s got just enough kick to remind you that it comes from a big bodied grape. This wine pairs perfectly with porch sitting, sunny days, and any light supper.

Kerus

Delicious and easy drinking, this sweet table red is sure to please everyone’s palate. Notes of jammy dark fruit and a hint of vanilla and chocolate on the nose are only the beginning of the richness to come. Once in your mouth, the complex flavors of tart cherry and ripe blackberry envelop the taste buds in a way that only a red blend of cabernet sauvignon, chambourcin, and merlot are able. Our favorite aspect of this wine is that it enables us to give back to Kerus Foundation. Kerus, which means doing something with all of your heart, is a wonderful organization that is providing support and AIDS education to children who have been orphaned by the AIDS epidemic in South Africa.

2015 Petit Verdot

Aged in French oak for 18 months prior to bottling, this fruit-forward wine is full-bodied with a lingering finish. Our Petit Verdot ages well and is a great match for earthy mushrooms, lamb, and barbecue pork and beef.
