2018 Fleur de California Estate Vineyards Vermentino
Our 2018 Vermentino has an inviting aromatic profile, with apple, flower, ripe melon, and citrus notes. On the palate, the citrus and green apple flavors are crisp and bright, yet soft, supple, with a hint of minerality.
On the palate, the wine has lovely
textured flavors of apricot and stone fruit with an intriguing mineral note that sets it apart from
most other white wines., with a crisp acidity and a balanced, generous finish.
This wine is fermented cold and slow to retain bright fruit aromas, then aged in a combination of stainless tank and neutral barrels on the yeast lees for about 4 months. To preserve acidity we do not allow mallow lactic fermentation to occur. The resulting wine is a bright, clean expression of citrus and peach aromas with a tangy and refreshing palate.
