Review date: February 18, 2015

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Vermentino is consistently a very good value wine. It opens with a pleasant floral and lemon bouquet with hints of lychee. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, nicely balanced and bright. The flavor profile is a tasty green apple with notes of mild minerality. I also detected a hint of Anjou pear and a touch of peach. The finish is dry and its flavors and gentle acidity fade away nicely. This pleasant wine white would pair well with grilled Dover sole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lemon-green in color, delicate aromas of citrus and tree fruits complement undertones of tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, the wine shows a delightfully zesty acidity, which makes it both food-friendly and crowd-pleasing. Pair this wine with pasta primavera and shrimp cocktails.

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
