2018 Dos Padres Vineyard Vermentino
Dos Padres Vineyard
TA: 6.0 g/L
Aged 6 months in stainless steel. This wine saw only minimal cold-stabilization, did NOT undergo heat-stabilization and is filtered, but unfined.
During the 2017 harvest, we were quite fortunate to get a surprise call from Eric Glomski at Page Springs Cellars offering us a small amount of this Vermentino and we were very excited to be offered it again in 2018. The fruit comes from the Dos Padres Vineyard, which lies across Oak Creek from Eric’s winery. It makes a beautiful, austere wine with a delicate citrus/melon character, subtle restraint and a minerality so characteristic of the fruit from that small part of the Oak Creek Valley. This is some special fruit and we’re so grateful to be able to share it with you.
