Gold Medal Winner: 2021 Tannat

“Our 2021 Tannat is a testament to our winemaking philosophy at Greenhill of allowing our fermentation and aging choices to accentuate the uniqueness of each vintage. We believe we were able to capture exactly this in our Tannat, as well as focusing on allowing a more fruit-forward yet balanced expression of a varietal that traditionally has a heavy tannic identity.” – Jed Gray, General Manager.

Gold Medal: 2021 Norton Locksley Reserve

“I’m very excited to see the burgeoning interest in our great native grape, Norton, and we’re honored to receive a Governor’s Cup Gold Medal, a top honor for wine quality. This is our grape, Virginia’s own, and we should all be proud of its world-renowned heritage and the encouraging prospects for its restored recognition as one of the world’s fine and unique red wines.” – Jennifer McCloud
