Aromas of apple and tropical fruit on this rich Chardonnay lead into vanilla and honey on the palate. The wine is full and opulent in the mouth but not overwrought. Good balance and a lingering finish add to the appeal.
Château Morrisette hits the mark again with this fragrant, floral wine. Round and full on the mouth, the wine has ample acidity to keep the honeyed, tropical fruit flavors from overpowering. A lovely effort with real class.
This Vidal Blanc offers tropical fruit flavors of peach and pineapple and a playful, lively acidity. Balanced and bold, the wine has enough personality to sip on it own. A fun white wine alternative at a nice price.
Scents of exotic fruit and flower petal come doused with a note of peach yogurt. Overall, it smells bright and high-pitched, but it lacks some depth. It tastes sweet and feels pliant, with easygoing acids and slender flavors of golden stone fruit.
Tropical fruit and citrus flavors mingle with a touch of earthy toast in this Chardonnay made in the Blue Ridge region of Virginia. The feel of this wine is light but there’s a lingering acidity and assertive fruit character that makes it memorable. Pair it with lighter seafood dishes or enjoy on its own.
Made from three of the prominent grapes grown in Virginia—Chambourcin, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot—this dry, spicy red blend is energetic and packed with red cherry, pepper and cinnamon. Friendly and accessible, it’s a great everyday sip. The wine pays tribute to service dogs and their work with disabled people.
The scents of toasted nuts and lemon furniture polish don’t mesh all that harmoniously, but this wine still boasts enough crisp, lemon and grapefruit flavors to make up for it. Slightly oily in the mouth, with a finish that veers back toward the oaky side.
A pretty nose of violets, cherry and pepper start this fun and friendly wine from Virginia. On the palate, somewhat straightforward cherry and spice are flavorful and solid. A good wine that will pair nicely with spicier cuisine—think Middle Eastern or tomato-based Italian dishes.
