ABOUT THE WINES

Shula's selected three Chateau Morrisette wines for their customers to taste.  Here is the background on each:

ARCHIVAL I
A vibrant bouquet of crushed rose petals and fresh roasted coffee give way to dark, black cherries and currants. Rich caramel notes lingered into a well-structured finish balanced spice & clove.  Definitely a steak lover’s choice (medium rare, please), yet hearty enough to stand next to baked lasagna or gorgonzola mushroom risotto.

Blend: 35% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot

Awards: Gold Medal - 2015 Virginia Wine Lovers Wine Classic • Silver Medal - 2015 Sommelier Challenge International Wine and Spirits Competition • Silver Medal - 2015 Florida State Fair International Wine Competition • Bronze Medal: 2015 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition • Bronze Medal 2015 Texsom International Wine Awards • Bronze Medal: 2015 Virginia Governor's Cup • Bronze Medal: 2015 Riverside (CA) International Wine Competition

2014 NOUVEAU CHIEN
This floral blend of Petit Manseng, Traminette, Chardonel, Chardonnay, and Viognier has a beautiful nose of honeydew melon and lemons. The palate is dry and crisp with a lively acidity through the finish.  This wine pairs well with shellfish, crab cakes, and oysters. Best served between 50-55º F

Production: A small percentage of the wine was barrel aged in new oak barrels after fermentation for just a few months to add light toasted notes and lengthen the finish

OUR DOG BLUE (non-vintage)
This popular white wine is a semi-sweet Riesling-Traminette blend, using Vidal Blanc for added depth. Aromas of melons, citrus fruits, apricots, and delicate flowers highlight the soft finish of this soothing wine.  Serve chilled with fruits and cheeses, fish, or spicy foods.
