From winemakers website:

A blend of 44% Vidal Blanc, 33% Petit Manseng, 19% Chambourcin, and 4% Traminette. The name suits this wine. Its hard to describe the color, its kind of a sliding scale out to the rim. The nose is wildly fragrant, full of fleshy red fruit and colorful flowers. The palate is entirely different. While the fruit is there, its a more underripe version of it. The subtle tannin structure implies an almost apple-like texture. Very generous and exuberant, it is a soft grippy drink that never gets boring. 395 cases produced.

Sherman Ridge Vineyard in Woodstock for Vidal blanc and Petit Manseng, Bluestone Vineyard in Bridgewater for Vidal blanc and Chambourcin, Rainbow Hill Vineyard in Harrisonburg for Vidal blanc and Petit Manseng, Barren Ridge Vineyard in Fishersville for Traminette.
