Storm King Wine Co. Vermentino 2021

Storm King Wine Co. is Ray Costanzo's (Golden Grove) side project with wife Jen. The label is named after the body of water just outside Stanhope, where the couple live.

This evocatively perfumed Vermentino spends 10d on skins with daily plunging. It speaks of pear, marzipan, with a little muskiness around the periphery.

Detailed and precise across the palate, a fine phenolic edge bolsters the wine and adds width and breadth to the fine acidity running long across the palate. Oozing quality and finesse, the Winemaker's play book has been well deployed here. 

An opportunity for many to re-assess the Granite Belt wine region and what it can deliver, for this wine is not just detailed in its own presentation, the winery has gone to extraordinary efforts in how it is presented, not just with the labeling but also the packaging. 93
