This is Chrysalis Vineyards’ flagship wine. All the components receive 100% malolactic fermentation and are aged for 14 months in French, Hungarian, and Virginia oak barrels. This blend offers the upfront fruit and intense color of Norton balanced with the structure and Old-World character of Tannat and Petit Verdot. Red berry fruits meld seamlessly with an earthy chocolate character and a slight pepper character.
Buttorfleoge is Chrysalis Vineyards' first sparkling wine and a new take on Norton based on an ancient practice. This 100% whole-clustered pressed Norton wine is produced using only the natural microflora found on the skins and rachises of the grapes grown on the Locksley Estate. The result is a true, terroir-driven pétillant-naturel (or Pét Nat), and an exciting addition to the Norton lineup here at Chrysalis Vineyards.
Sarah’s Patio Red is a sweet, light red wine made with 100% Norton grapes in the style of a rosé. It is a refreshing, food-friendly, semi-sweet wine with lots of spritz. Serve this wine refrigerator-cold.
