Our travels to the exotic Mediterranean island of Corsica have uncovered some of our favorite French white wines, from the native Corsican grape Vermentino (or Vermentinu in local dialect). 2019 is our second release of Vermentinu, sourced from two sites in Santa Ynez, half from the marine sedimentary loam of Camp Four, and half from the pure sand of Brick Barn, both harvested by hand from September 19th through the 23rd.
Fermentation and aging was in neutral French oak for six months with or, with only a filtration before bottling.
With aromas of white flowers, pink grapefruit, and a distinctive bitter almond finish, this dry white is as versatile at the table as our favorite Vermentinu from Corsica. Perfect for seafood and white fish dishes, it also goes down easily on its own. Bottles empty themselves quicker than one could imagine.
