Unusual white varieties - from Albariño to
Vermentino - are catching on in California;
this is a great example of the latter.
What You Need To Know
This rare California white showcases
Vermentino, a Mediterranean grape variety that yields zesty,
refreshing wines. It’s the bright idea of vintner Patrick McNeil,
a thirtysomething industry vet and fifth-generation Californian
with a knack for sussing out stellar fruit from singular vineyards.
In this case, McNeil connected with a grape grower in Lodi, an
up-and-coming region 80 miles inland from San Francisco. Located
on the edge of a vast river delta, Lodi’s hot days and cool breezes
give the Vermentino grape the climate it needs to excel. McNeil
fermented the grapes in tanks and aged the wine in neutral
French oak barrels, resulting in lip-smacking acidity and ripe,
exotic fruit flavors. A dash of Muscat adds a floral note.
Floral white peach
and lemon scents.
Crisp and dry, with melon,
peach and floral notes.
