By blocking Malolactic fermentation in this wine, we were able to maintain the acidity and freshness. Aromas of orange blossom, lychee, lemongrass, and white peach all give way to a beautiful flavor profile. Notes of melon, grapefruit, key lime and honey dew melon are all balanced with a bright acidity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
By blocking Malolactic fermentation in this wine, we were able to maintain the acidity and freshness. Aromas of elderflower, white peach and green plum give way to a beautifully textured Sauvignon Blanc. A slight note of salinity and roundness transition seamlessly into a fresh, mineral driven finish with bright acidity.
Vineyard Notes
The vines in the five-acre Sauvignon Blanc block of Frediani Vineyards were planted specifically for Vermeil Wines in the days of Jeanne Frediani (Jim Frediani’s mother and on-time matriarch of the family and business). The soil in that section of the vineyard is heavy, rich, and comprised mostly of Bale clay loams that are perfect for this varietal.
