    2019 Chrysalis Vineyards "Locksley Reserve" Norton (Middleburg, VA) 6R

    Warmer growing regions, fully ripened grapes, extended barrel-aging add to the wine’s body

    2019 Chrysalis Vineyards "Locksley Reserve" Norton (Middleburg, VA) 6R

    This wine is smooth, dark, and sophisticated. Notes of spice and cherries carry the aromatics to the palate. Dark chocolate, raspberry, and subtle earthy tones reflect the old world flavors. The backbone of this wine is reinforced with firm tannins from the Tannat and has a subtle espresso finish. A touch of Petit Verdot works to push through ripe blueberries and plum.

    About The Varietal

    Norton

    Originating in Richmond, Virginia, Norton grape holds the prestigious title of the official grape of Missouri, serving as the foundation of its wine industry. This varietal presents a deep, robust profile reminiscent of dark berry fruits, with subtle undertones of cloves and coffee. Contrary to expectation, it doesn't exhibit overpowering tannins, yet it boasts a refreshing acidity that enhances its aging potential. Norton stands out as a unique choice for wine enthusiasts seeking a distinctive and unparalleled tasting experience.

    About The Producer

    Chrysalis Vineyards

    Chrysalis Vineyards is dedicated to " proudly restoring Virginia wines to world renown, and celebrating the homecoming of Norton, the Real American Grape!” Owner Jennifer McCloud's vision is to focus on cultivating Norton, alongside other proven European grape varieties that flourish in Virginia's unique terroir. Rather than making “the world’s 350th best Merlot,” Chrysalis Vineyards prioritizes producing exceptional wines that speak for themselves internationally. Jennifer's goal is to craft wines of such distinction that they require no further justification or apology (you know.. “Well, this is pretty good for Virginia.”) Norton, being Virginia's indigenous grape, holds a special place in this endeavor.
