Corry's Notes - This is our first release of a clone-specific wine for Sunset Hills.  The goal is to show you a specific terrior, our Shenandoah Springs Vineyard, one that year after year delivers excellent fruit quality.  I chose clone 96 for it’s complexity both in ripening and barrel aging.  During ripening, the fruit has notes of pineapple and pear with great acidity.  I saw this wine as a chance to highlight not only the vineyard, but how detailed we can get in growing and making wine.

My favorite Chardonnay Sunset Hills has ever made! The perfect balance between bright yet toasty.

I would call this a medium-bodied Chardonnay. Not as heavy, oaky or buttery as a west coast Chard. I call this toasty, creamy rather than oaky, buttery. Loads of green fruit flavors balance the secondary notes. LOVE THIS WINE! I do like crisp, clean Chards too, but this is THE BEST!
