The Winery at Bull Run’s Delaney was named after the oldest daughter of the Hickox family. The 2018 Delaney is medium gold in color and expresses aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, and cooked peaches. With nectarine and orange marmalade flavors, this Delaney is medium bodied and juicy with a medium long finish. Its acidity lingers to keep the flavors of the wine present throughout.
The grape varietals were sourced from four high-quality vineyards in Northern and Southern Virginia. Each varietal was picked separately at the peak of ripeness.
The fruit was destemmed completely to limit any herbaceous aromas or flavors, pressed immediately to limit the contact with Oxygen and maximize fruit flavors, varietals fermented separately then blended.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with soft cheeses, baked brie in pastry drizzled with honey, summer fruit like melons and berries, chicken or seafood salad, and outdoor parties. Serve chilled at 40-45F.
