"This is a stainless-steel fermented white that retains beautiful acidity and fruit-forward flavor—a celebration of beeswax, wet stone and French butter that is lovely, aromatic and refreshing. With balanced structure, it remains lively and interesting throughout."
Vinous Reverie Notes
A classic white wine varietal from northeastern Italy, our 2020 Vermentino is a mineral-driven, high-acid wine with flavors of honeydew, cantaloupe, lime zest, limestone, white flowers with beeswax texture on the palate. Paired best with oysters, fresh crab, hard cheeses, white sauce pasta, and summer greens. Raymond Burr Vineyard sits in the northwestern hillsides of Dry Creek Valley just below Lake Sonoma. This 17-acre vineyard is tucked back in a small pocket valley off of West Dry Creek Road. Sourcing the entirety of the 4-acre block of Vermentino, we send the fruit directly to press, ferment in stainless steel tanks with minimal intervention and low sulfur at bottling.
