Golden Grove Vermentino 2019

Winemaker Ray Costanzo has absolutely nailed this release. Packaging refresh in 2019.

The briny tang hangs long enough, a lingering moment, as if on a breeze. Carrying with it the fruit presence, of lemons, a suggestion of lime and green mango. 

The barrel Ferment portion, and oak, lend the wine a lovely body. It's creamily textured, a subtle spice inflection being the wine's seasoning. 

Delivers on an exquisite length. Still feels young at this stage, will settle and flesh further. 94
