Food Pairings for Chrysalis Vineyards Rosé Blend Mariposa
History: Chrysalis Vineyards -- named symbolically for the rare nectar of fine wine emerging from the barrel so as the butterfly emerges from its cocoon -- was born in 1997. The vineyard established its permanent home on the spectacular 209 acres of Locksley Estate, alongside the banks of the Hungry Run in Loudoun County, Virginia. We are excited about our alternative grape varieties, some of which include: the French Viognier, Petit Verdot, Tannat, Fer Servadou, and Petit Manseng; the Spanish Albariño, Tempranillo and Graciano. But, we're most excited about Virginia's own native grape, Norton. This heirloom gem consistently produces premium quality red wines of great character and intensity, and being a native plant is highly disease-resistant, able to be cultivated with minimal environmental impact. Chrysalis Vineyards is committed to restoring Norton to its rightful position of prominence among fine wines. Tasting Notes: Mariposa is the Spanish word for butterfly. Made in the style of a Spanish Clarete from Northern Spain, Chrysalis Vineyards Mariposa is a dry rosé wine which derives its vivid color from Norton, Virginia's distinctive native grape. This is a full-bodied and bold wine, and its bright color foretells its fruity character with fragrant aromas and flavors with hints of raspberry, melon, and cherry. Whether a picnic or pizza, turkey or tapas, our rosé is ideal with light and full fares. Dress it up, dress it down, Chrysalis Vineyards Mariposa is unpretentious, flexible and practical.
