New Kent Winery is pleased to announce that in 2011 they will have the following wines available to customers:
WHITE NORTON IS BACK!
We are extremely excited to announce that our White Norton will return in 2011! The quality of the fruit is fantastic this year and the wine will be wonderful. However, this is a limited release! We will keep everyone informed as to when we will be able to offer this wine, but look for the White Norton in early summer.
Our White Merlot, a true white wine made from the red Merlot grape, has quickly become one of our best loved wines. Our Merlot crop of 2010 was one of the best we have ever experienced. Excellent with sweeter foods or spicy fare, our White Merlot has found its rightful place as one of our very special, versatile wines.
CHARDONNAY and CHARDONNAY RESERVE
We hear all the time, “I normally don’t like Chardonnay, but yours is great!” The New Kent Winery is becoming known for our two popular Chardonnays. Tom Payette, our masterful winemaker, has achieved success with both our creamy, smooth Chardonnay Reserve and our fruit-forward, stainless steel fermented Chardonnay.
Time shared with friends becomes even more delightful when paired with our blue-bottled Vidal Blanc.This year’s crop of Vidal grapes was extremely beautiful in the vineyard, with the large clusters turning a deep yellow as they matured. Our crisp, flavorful Vidal Blanc promises to remain a crowd pleaser in 2010.
This smooth Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has become another award winning wine for the New Kent Winery as well as our best selling red wine. Versatile and savory, our Meritage is excellent with beef, veal or pork, as well as game fowl such as duck, goose or pheasant. We nearly sold out of our Meritage this year, but luckily we will be bottling more this month.
Our Merlot is produced as a soft American style that will only get better with age. Merlot is well suited to the soils and climate of Virginia, which gives us the ability to produce excellent wines. Smooth and mild, our Merlot is an excellent addition to Italian dishes such as lasagna and spaghetti.
A NEW WINE SCHEDULED FOR 2011
This brand new wine will be a unique white wine with a fresh new flavor and a very special purpose. To kick off summer, New Kent Winery is planning a new release party Memorial Day weekend, 2011. They are extremely excited about the unveiling of this wine! We’ll keep you posted on the details as they develop.
