Appellation: Temecula Valley
Residual Sugar: 0.2%
Composition: 96% Temecula Vermentino, 4% California Muscat
Aromas of pear and lemon zest enchant the senses before pink grapefruit and almond enrich the palate, with a touch of minerality completing the picture on this hand crafted, stylish Italian varietal.
The 2021 Vermentino is a wonderful example of how well this Italian variety does in Temecula, with a nice balance of crisp, refreshing acidity, and light fruit aromas. This vintage was blended with 4% Muscat to further accentuate the floral, honey notes, giving this wine a little more complexity.
