A complex offering of spice, fruit and minerality. Light-bodied yet textural, it is both bright and herbaceous as well as creamy and lingering.

|Food Suggestions||Delicious on its own and versatile with food, the first choice being anything from the ocean as this wine was born to an island rich in seafood variety and abundance.|
|In The Vineyard||The run up to ripening was very dry with insufficient winter rains and very little during budding. Heavy winds in November and December did not help water retention of the small amounts of falling vapor. Vermentino however is used to a limited water supply and this clone from the Italian island of Sardinia flourishes on rock and sun with little water.|
|In The Cellar||Grapes were whole bunch pressed to lessen extraction of tannins and ensure a cleaner fruit expression. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and the wine was kept on its primary fine lees till preparations were made to bottle on 27 April 2017|
|Blend Information||100% Vermentino|
