Comments by winemaker Brian Barry.
In the 2015 vintage, we again blended grapes from our South and Main vineyards to provide the balance of natural acidity and sweetness that is crucial to the lush fruit flavors of Vignoles. The result is a fiesta of flavor, with vibrant citrus and tropical fruit notes. I recommend enjoying it well chilled, either on its own or paired with Indian, Thai, Chinese and other hot and spicy cuisines. Cheers!
