We always love to experiment at Chateau Tumbleweed and we’re really excited about white varietals with high acidity and crisp, citrusy characters. So, we jumped at the chance to try this Vermentino from Dragoon Mountain Vineyard. The refreshing acidity and bright, lemony flavor are a perfect match for our hot AZ summers. Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of this varietal at Chateau Tumbleweed!
