Barrel Aging and Cooperage:  100% Barrel fermented in older French oak (Sirugue and Mercurey) and then racked to stainless-steel for aging

Winemaking: This is the eleventh vintage of Vermentino from the Fox Family Vineyard!  Vermentino is thought to have originated in Spain and has made amazing, crisp food-friendly wines in Italy and Southern France where it is named Rolle.  I like to enjoy this wine with oysters on a warm spring day, by the pool or with shellfish.  These grapes come from a tiny, high density block on a rocky slope of the Fox Family Vineyard.  The grapes were hand harvested (by me, my mom and dad, my brothers and a few of my dad’s friends), sorted and whole-cluster pressed to preserve the fresh, crisp and fruity quality of this amazing varietal.  The juice was then fermented in all older French oak barrels while preventing malo-lactic fermentation with sulphur dioxide and aged for 3 months in stainless steel.  This wine was bottled in late February of 2019.

Production: 76 cases

Bottle Aging: Drink within the next year to enjoy the bright, crisp qualities of this wine.
