Block A 2020

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 2020 blend is 50% Vidal Blanc, 30% Chardonel, and 20% Pinot Gris and has elegant aromas of green apples and peaches, with just a hint of lime.  It has a beautifully smooth finish and is a perfect pairing for seafood!

    It is a great idea to imaginatively blend when the vintage is a tough one. The result with Block A is a delightful, well-balanced wine with decent acidity. I am thinking it will pair with Rappahanock little necks, or sushi.

      Jurgen – those sound like wonderful pairing ideas! I think the acidity would hold up nicely against sushi and clams are always a favorite! We’ll be doing oyster and clam pickup here at the Winery on Friday, June 19th and Saturday, June 20th, so keep an eye out for that! Cheers!

    First time to purchase Block A……Enjoyed Block A tonight with Appetizers before dinner. What a delightful crisp wine with a nice sweet finish ( at least to my pallet) Hope you will be able to duplicate another year.
