2017 Maurie Vermentino
Named after Marnie’s great Uncle, this wine shows the character that defines Maurie. Dot’s husband, a horse jockey who was to the point but kind and a real family man. This Italian variety is such a joy to work with as its character shows in the vineyard with a slight oyster shell, mineral character that flows through to the finish on the palate. The oak and lees contact help to give the mid-palate a textured, creamy finish but still work in harmony with the racy, fleshy grapefruit acid. A touch of white peach, lime blossom and orange zest, apple tart and a wet stone character bring the wine to a full circle. Powerful yet refined in its delivery.
