Vermentino is a white-wine grape grown in various locations around the western Mediterranean: northwestern Italy, southern France and the neighboring islands of Corsicaand Sardinia. Its grown in a few select vineyards here in California and we were lucky enough to secure some!
Intense notes of herbs and wildflowers open the aromatic description of this wine, and then gives way to hints of spice and sea and closes with notes of almond. Enters the mouth fresh and not too sweet, with a pleasant lively acidity and a fragrant varietal flavor. Serve slightly chilled on those warm days!
