Tasting Notes
A Virginia-style Chardonnay with lovely aromas of ripe pear, honeydew melon, and red delicious apples, this medium-bodied Chardonnay has crisp flavors of apple and pear on the front. Subtle oak and spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and turmeric meet the mid-palate, followed by vanilla, caramel, and toasted marshmallow on the finish.
Vineyard Notes
Chardonnay grapes were sourced from Meriwether Vineyards in Broad Run, Virginia.
Winemaker Notes
The 2015 Chardonnay is barrel fermented and aged in a combination of new and neutral American Oak barrels. The Chardonnay has completed a full malolactic fermentation subsequent to the primary fermentation to develop a smooth creamy texture. The 2015 Chardonnay was bottled on June 8, 2016.
Food Pairing Notes
Dark green salads, fattier fish, like swordfish, seafood in rich sauces, and light pork dishes, as well as mild aged cheeses make a great match for the 2015 Chardonnay.

I am a big lovery of Chardonnay, especially barrel fermented. This Chardonnay has the buttery oak taste, but is not too much butter and still has a crispness like a stainless steel Chardonnay has.

Love the Oak taste. Great wine to serve with grilled salmon.

Pleasing Chardonnay with nice citrus notes and hint of vanilla. Spouse and I enjoyed on Bull Run's heated porch, with a generous load of bread and olive spread - which we brought home as our "leftovers"! An enjoyable evening.
