2007 Reserve Chardonnay


Gray Ghost ChardThe Kellert Family has again produced a quality wine in its 2007 Reserve Chardonnay. The wine was fermented and aged in new French oak and underwent 100% malolatic fermentation, a vintner’s process that creates a silky mouth feel and buttery finish. On the palate, this well-balanced white displays pear, apple and spice notes and a rich, satisfying finish. The wine medalled fifteen times, including a gold at the 2009 Lodi International Wine Competition. Pair this beauty with shrimp and scallops in butter sauce. Drink now through 2011.

Gray Ghost Vineyards is located at 14706 Lee Highway, Amissville, VA 20106. The tasting room is opened March through December, Friday—Sunday from 11am to 5 pm; and during January and February on weekends 11am to 5 pm. (540) 937-4869.
