2008 Michael Shaps Viognier is made just outside of Charlottesville, at Virginia Wine Works.  VWW is the first custom crush in Virginia!  YAY custom crush!

This wine is a blend of 2 vineyards, and Michael has been making it since 2000 here in Virginia.  Creamy and rich, it’s got a lot of stone fruit and grapefruit structure.  On the skins overnight, there is a great mouthfeel in the wild yeast wine fermented in stainless.  This is quite a classic viognier.

Virginia Wine Works has 23 brands currently, and they are all small time producers and new wineries.
