    2020 Chrysalis Vineyards Fluture Wines "The Butterfly" Skin Contact Viognier (Middleburg, VA) 5W

    Fluture (pronounced 'flute-TOUR-aay') translates to "butterfly" in Moldavan, the language spoken by the assistant winemaker's wife at Chrysalis Vineyard. This wine offers scents of white flowers and dried citrus peel, along with tastes of lemon zest and ripe green melon.

    About The Varietal

    Viognier

    Viognier, synonymous with the northern Rhône, is a versatile grape that plays a dual role, not only as a white wine grape but also blended with Syrah in red wines. When crafted as a varietal wine, Viognier produces golden-colored, aromatic white wines characterized by pronounced stone fruit aromas, with apricots and peaches commonly noted. The wines are known for their full-bodied and often textural palate. However, Viognier is susceptible to high alcohol levels and may exhibit low levels of freshening acidity.

    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.
