Williamsburg Winery Governor’s White
On Saturday, we were in the mood for a white to pair alongside a spicy, buffalo chicken wrap. That same evening, we had stopped into Total Wine, and finally picked up a bottle of the Governor’s White from the Williamsburg Winery. My sister has talked about this wine for a good year now, but I’ll be honest, it went in one ear and out the other. Perhaps it was the low price tag or the high production, but for whatever reason, it never made it out of the store. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for wines under $10, but a wine for that price from Virginia! Usually not a great combo…
The Williamsburg Winery is the largest winery in the state with annual case production around 60,000, an impressive number for Virginia. The Governor’s White remains one of the most popular wines available in Virginia and is widely available through retail and online channels. Coming in at $9 a bottle, the semi-dry wine is a blend of Vidal Blanc, Muscat and Riesling (will confirm through the winery). On the nose, I picked up floral notes, and light citrus fruit. A definite candied nose. In the mouth, hints of apple and lemon, with a syrup finish. An easy, everyday white, that I’ll be buying more of.
In summary, the Governor’s White was a surprise. A true “patio white”, that can be enjoyed with friends and family.
