2015 Governor Fauquier
Vidal Blanc

2015 Governor Fauquier

The 2015 Gov. Fauquier is an off-dry wine, coming in at 1% residual sugar, made from 100% Vidal Blanc, and is done entirely in stainless steel, to retain its pleasant, fruit-forward nature. The nose consists of pineapple, pear, peach, mango, and honey.  Upon tasting, citrus, melon, and apple refresh the palate.  Acid and sugar harmonize in this wine, exciting the entire palate and showing well with a pig roast or spicy Thai, Mexican, and Indian foods.
