We are kicking off Valentine’s Day early!
Join us on Friday, February 13th for the release of
Pippin Hill’s 2014 Viognier.
Our estate Viognier fruit provides the base of this wine, giving it depth, richness, and aromatics that have become the signature of the grape variety.
This is classic Virginia Viognier with aromas of nectarine, white blossoms, and just a suggestion of sugar snaps. On the palate this wine is piquant and alive with stone fruit, kumquat, and maybe we’re a little biased, but there’s some Albemarle Pippin in there as well. It boasts lively acids that keep the palate feeling lifted and zesty.
The long, beautiful finish is clean and mineral driven. It is a well rounded wine that pairs well with a host of foods from oysters, to mild cheeses, to many simple preparations of seafood, sushi included. It also pairs well with pastas, our favorite is a glass of this crisp white paired with Chef Scatena’s homemade tortellini.
