Fox Meadow Vineyards
FMV Le Renard Gris

2009 Le Renard Gris

Owners Dan & Cheryl Mortland—and their widely respected consultant Tom Payette— have been clever as foxes in blending 40% chardonnay, 40% Vidal Blanc and 20% Pinot Grigio to create their Le Renard Gris. Bright, crisp, and fruit forward, the wine showcases peach, grapefruit and lemon notes. This exceptionally clean white is captured sunshine in a bottle. Pair with grilled marinated prawns and fresh melon salsa. Drink now.

Fox Meadow Vineyards is located at 3310 Freezeland Road, Linden, VA. The tasting room features an expansive deck with adjoining gazebo offering impressive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The winery is opened Monday through Friday 11am to 5pm and on weekends 11am to 6pm. (540) 636-6777. http://www.foxmeadowwinery.com/
