Chardonnay Estate Reserve
Aromas of coconut, Macadamia nut, pear, and golden apple lead to additional notes of pear and toast on the palate. Pairs well with butter and cream sauces, roasted chicken, and heavier poultry and seafood dishes. Made entirely from grapes grown on the vineyards at First Colony.
The Viognier in the blend contributes slightly floral aromas of honeysuckle, combining with notes of honeydew melon and green apple from the Chardonnay. Stainless steel aging creates a light, crisp style great for sipping alone or pairing with light salads and seafood.
Semi-sweet white blend with flavors of pineapple, orange blossoms, honey, and Golden Delicious apples. Named after the original spelling of the Shenandoah in 1776, meaning “daughter of the stars”. Pairs well with tart apple pie, strong blue cheese, or spicy curries. 3%RS
White Wine Blend
Intense nose of orange blossom, apricot, and pear. Tropical fruit abounds on the palate with notes of mango, lime, and pineapple, creating a wine as crisp and refreshing as the summer breeze for which it is named. Medium body and great acidity make this wine very food-friendly.
