Food Pairings for Chrysalis Vineyards White Blend Sarah's Patio White
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: Named after our ancestral patron, Sarah Girtrude Lynn, this is a delicate white blend, 100% tank fermented, done in the style of a Riesling. Its muted floral bouquet, flavors of guava and candied apples with a touch of sweetness, is balanced with enough crisp acidity to keep it refreshing.
