2016 Governor Fauquier
Vidal Blanc

2016 Governor Fauquier

This off-dry white wine is made to be light and refreshing, especially enjoyable in the spring and summer months of the year. Aromatically this wine is driven by fruity notes of lime peel with hints of lemon, pineapple, and pear. The wine has a wonderful flow across the palate as its natural acidity is well balanced by the residual sugar to give the wine a wonderful viscosity on the palate and a nice long, supple finish. The wine pairs nicely with spicy or Asian food, but also with fruit salad or blue cheese.
