2020 Vermentino

Our sixth 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 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 hints of chartreuse at the meniscus, teeming with tropical aromatic notes—from green papaya to mango and nascent pineapple and a burst of sea spray. The palate gives way to a rich palette of citrus flavors from zest to fresh juice, bursting with flavor, this mouthwatering wine is nothing sure of exuberant with a personality truly its own.
