2019 Texas High Plains Vermentino
2019 Texas High Plains Vermentino

For the 2019 Vermentino we experimented with picking the fruit at a lower brix to create a lighter bodied white. The goal was to keep this wine crisp, but to create complexity and mouthfeel with lees stirring. We harvested at about 22 brix at the end of August, then fermented in a stainless steel tank. Following fermentation this wine was stirred weekly and allowed to partially complete malolactic fermentation to further create some softness to the palate.

Tasting Notes
Characteristic aromatics of lemon, lime and pineapple are complemented by white flowers, white pepper, and ginger. Although lighter-bodied you’ll find this wine to be nicely balanced on the palate with a long finish.

Food Pairing Notes
This is a great wine for well-seasoned (not to be confused with spicy!) foods and would do well with Asian dishes, pestos, and lemon peppered chicken.
