INTRODUCING: Fleur Vermentino
Carneros Wine Company is very proud to announce the release of our newest Fleur wine, the 2015 Fleur Carneros Vermentino from the Las Brisas Vineyard.
This wine represents many firsts for the Fleur brand. Francis
Mahoney has been growing this Italian varietal in the Las Brisas Vineyard in the Sonoma portion of the Carneros appellation since 2003, but this is the first Vermentino release under the Fleur label. This is also our first wine in a screw cap bottle, and it is our first vineyard designated Fleur release.
This wine has a most inviting aromatic profile, with apple,
flower, ripe melon, and citrus notes. On the palate, the citrus and green apple flavors are crisp and bright, yet also soft, supple, and broad across the palate. An intriguing hint of minerality in the background sets this wine apart from other Italian varietals.
Less than 500 cases produced!
