Combination of tropical fruits meeting with lemons and green apples that provide a pleasing tartness.
Not so well known is our Vermentino, which is a unique wine that somewhat represents a Sauvignon Blanc. Aside from the red grapefruit peel on the finish, the flavors are more of a compelling combination of tropical fruits, like a bushel of bananas, meeting up with loads of lemons and green apples lending a pleasing tartness. That tartness is smoothed by ripe citrus sweetness and minerality, keeping the wine dry, yet fruity in an exciting, medium-bodied balance.
Recommended dinner pairings would be the same foods typically paired with a Champagne or unoaked Chard, such as Swordfish steak with a Lemon Caper Sauce.
The optimal drinking window for the 2015 Vermentino is from production until 2020.
