Our 2022 C²  highlights all the great attributes of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay.  We fermented the Chenin Blanc in clay amphora to enhance minerality and white floral notes.  The Chardonnay was fermented in tank then moved to neutral French oak barrels for aging.  63% Chenin Blanc, 37% Chardonnay and 100% delicious! This wine hits all the marks.  Only 250 cases produced.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2022 C² highlights all the great attributes of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Vibrant and crisp with minerality and notes of pear blossom. This refreshing white is the perfect balance between acidity and a flavorful clean finish.
Vineyard Notes
Both of the Chenin Blanc clones sit at 1000’ elevation on mostly granite and sandy loam. The Chardonnay lies at 1250’ . The block faces due south and soils are comprised primarily of limestone.
Production Notes
Only 250 cases bottled.
Winemaker Notes
This was our first wine we made from the property, and most likely the only time we will make this blend as a still wine. In 2023 all of the Chenin and most of the Chardonnay went to traditional method sparkling wine. It will be a few years until they are ready...

This might be one of my favorite Virginia white wines. Very crisp and refreshing. Love that they used the amphora to balance out the acidity and finish!
