In 2018, one of the hardest vintages Virginia has ever seen, we had to get creative in our winemaking. Block A emerged as the result of blending two grapes together that grow side by side in Block A on our estate – our Pinot Gris and our Chardonel. We found that the end result was a bright, fresh and crisp wine that people enjoyed more than our standalone Pinot Grigio!
The 2022 blend is 61% Chardonel and 39% Petit Manseng and has elegant aromas of lemon curd, white peach, tarragon, and minerality. It’s beautifully crisp with refreshing acidity and is a perfect pairing for seafood!
