Winemaker Steve & Marilee Shaffer Notes
We love all things Italian: motorcycles (a due Ducati family), cars (loved that Alfa, even if it was always wanting tuned), and, of course, wine. In that vein, Vermentino is a fabulous addition to the UL family. If Vermentino was an automobile, it would undoubtedly be a sleek, white Lamborghini, angular, but with curves enough that it was never ustere, and edgy, but still classically beautiful. Originally from Sardinia and Liguria, the French love it, too, with growing interest in Languedoc and Roussillon. In the glass, Vermentino is full of zippy mineral and citrus notes: lemon zest, wet granite, and a squeeze of grapefruit. While light, crisp, and always refreshing, it never lacks complexity with finishing notes of stone fruit, fresh alm ...more... ond, and salinity. VINTAGE NOTES After a warm dry February that encouraged the vineyard to an early budbreak, Lodi returned to winter conditions with adequate but not excessive rain—a relief as the vineyard was flooded by 2016-17’s heavy precipitation. While warm, the region saw reduced sunlight levels—an effect of Northern California wildfires—that slowed maturation. Vermentino is typically one of the latest white varieties to be harvested so a warm, dry fall was welcome.
