Each year our winemaker takes a select batch of grapes to do a little exploration in winemaking. Some years these batches end up in our proprietary blends and some years the wine created is so distinct it wants to shine all on its own. Such is the case with our 2019 Vermentino. This wine was fermented on the skins, similar to how a red wine would ferment, then aged in neutral oak for 16 months. The resulting wine is crisp with aromas of lime, green apple, and citrus flower enhanced by a backbone of flinty minerality. The crisp acidity on the palate is complemented by flavors of lime meringue and almond while finishing with a citrus zest and fine tannin (a result of the extended skin contact during fermentation). We hope you enjoy this wine with your upcoming summer meals. This wine begs to be enjoyed with seafood, but is definitely structured enough to handle grilled chicken.
