2017 Broken Earth Limited Release Vermentino
This wine is the epitome of a summer in the countryside, right in your glass! With a practically clear transparency, the slow legs of golden straw and mild sunsets slip down the sides of the glass emitting a minty, yellow hue.
Take a big whiff and go on a journey through paradise with an initial aroma of pear, followed swiftly by cantaloupe melon, pineapple and honeysuckles, finishing with a very ripe and sweet candy fragrance. This white wine is meant to be enjoyed by the pool alongside fresh summer fruit or relaxing on a hayride through a vineyard or farm.
If the gorgeous shock of the bright nose is considered an appetizer to awaken the senses, then the palate on this wine is the perfect fulfilling entrée dish that will have you going back for seconds. Organic fresh honey notes greet the tongue on the initial approach, giving a very gentle mouthfeel. Indulge in a deeper sip and continue to taste citrus fruit without the acidic tingle. Finish with a hint of apricot that lingers longingly. This clean and bright wine pairs beautifully with a goat cheese and melon salad, drizzled with an orange balsamic vinegar.
