Along with our White Wine blend, our inaugural release of Vermentino is an exploration of minerality, richness, and intensity using ancient techniques of skin-fermentation and maceration. It was an easy and exciting decision: as a grape, Vermentino has so much flavor, and its mostly unlocked by chewing on the skins for a moment.
For the 2021 vintage, we separated the harvest into two lots of wine, the first was sent to press right away to make a crystalline white wine, and the second was left to ferment and later rest on its skins for about three weeks. These two lots were blended together relatively early after completing malolactic fermentation in January 2022 and left to age in neutral barrels until bottling in October. The wine is bottled without filtration.
Tasting Notes: Effusive aromatics of orange, dried apricot, pineapple rind, with a hint of salinity and herbaceousness. A rich and nervy energy marks the palate, with flavors of apricot, orange creamsicle, cardamom, and savory herbs. Lasting and focused finish, with tannin reminiscent of black tea.
TA 5.9 g/L
Grapes are certified organic (CCOF). Fermentation is initiated spontaneously without the addition of commercial yeast or malolactic bacteria.
