2014 Rockbridge V d'Or
2014 Rockbridge V d

Blend of Vignoles, Riesling, Vidal Blanc and Traminette | 15% residual sugar |13.0 % alcohol

Tasting Notes
Winemakers use refrigeration technology to control fermentation temperatures, so we have adapted this art in making our version of "ice wine". We were the first winery in Virginia(1994) to use cryoconcentration to make dessert wine and have set the standard with our V d'Or. In a blind tasting, our V d'Or was rated higher than a similar wine costing $350. This wine evokes honey and mandarin oranges.
