(1) 2018 Vermentino, (1) PRMRY Enhance Extra Virgin Olive Oil (medium-intensity, 375mL)
2018 Vermentino – Our 4th vintage of the esoteric Italian varietal Vermentino—albeit with a Californian twist—has reached its stride in the vineyard, full stop. Originally hailing from coastal Tuscany and Sardinia, it embodies a unique expression from its perch nestled in the volcanic soils of the Sierra foothills. We harvest at night, gently whole-cluster-press and ferment in stainless steel, all to retain its freshness. To add a touch of roundness to the wine, we age briefly sur lie. The resulting wine is of a brilliant lemon hue, with aromatic notes of candied lemon peel and lychee, and hints of orange blossom. The palate is generous with citrus and lean tropical fruits – think freshly squeezed lemons, green papaya, and young pineapple! – in a balanced and refreshing framework of bright acidity and ample minerality.
PRMRY Enhance EVOO – This medium intensity oil plays a supporting role in your dish — it elevates without overtly standing out. It pairs perfectly with roasted vegetables, dips, pasta, fish, poultry, grains, and tofu, but will taste delicious with whatever you fancy.
The ENHANCE oil is filtered, and produced from Hojiblanca olives that were harvested in November 2019. Certified by the California Olive Oil Council, the resulting EVOO has herbaceous notes of artichoke and green almond. PRMRY's bottles are sealed with a wooden closure, and made of glass coated with eco-friendly, organic, UV spray.
