Viognier 2015
A benchmark wine of White Hall Vineyards, our Viognier has been regularly winning state and national level wine competition awards for over 11 years! Produced using the highest quality fruit harvested from our vineyard and two long standing local growers, our winemakers ensure minimal skin-contact at press followed by a long, cool fermentation to ensure the correct balance between the delicate, intricate aromas and flavors of this grape variety with its characteristic bitterness. A combination of tank and neutral-oak barrel aging with regular batonnage and careful blending results in a refined, elegant example of the Rhone-derived varietal wine. This may be the white wine to convert those who “…only drink reds”.

Merlot 2014
Technical Notes
This classic varietal of Bordeaux grows well in Virginia's long, warm summers. A late April frost in White Hall reduced grape yield, resulting in intensified berry color and flavor. A longer hanging time on the vine, combined with extended maceration and nine months of aging in a combination of neutral and medium-toasted French Oak barrels are features of this limited vintage.
