Tasting notes

Color: Pale salmon/orange in color.

Aromas:  The nose is candied apple, brioche and some light florals mixed in.

Taste: It has a fine mousse when poured.   Good balance of acid with the weight of the wine.  This sparkling has a good body to it and meshes well with the effervescence.  There is good fruit on the palate with some bright apple and pear.  The fruit lingers throughout the finish.

2016 Virginia Commercial Grape Report Season Summary

Virginia’s 2016 growing season followed a generally challenging winter, with significant snowfall and low temperatures in January and February. Three solid weeks of late winter/early spring rains were followed by a late frost in the first and second weeks of April. The late frost was especially damaging to smaller growers, many of whom lost their entire crops for the year. A hotter than usual summer, especially in late July and early August, presented growers with another set of challenges, especially as rain was intense but infrequent during this period.

A late start to winter, as well as an overall warmerthan-usual November and December, extended the time available for harvest, with many growers not completing their harvest before the end of November when students from Virginia Commonwealth University began reaching out to them to collect data for this report. Cold weather didn’t truly arrive until the second week of December, when temperatures stayed consistently below freezing for the first time in the 2016 season.
