Mahoney Vermentino 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

When we first harvested Vermentino four years ago it would have been difficult to predict that this austere varietal would become one of our most sought after wines. Beautifully balanced with delicate floral aromas and underlying layers of stone fruit, this wine is a perfect example of what this vineyard can produce with mother natures help. This crisp and clean sipper exhibits refreshing acidity making it the perfect partner for oysters, ceviche, seared scallops, or your favorite lighter fare. Serve slightly chilled and then simply allow the character of the wine to speak for itself.

Francis Mahoney appointed Ken Foster, veteran Pinot Noir winemaker, to oversee production at Mahoney Vineyards in June, 2002. The winemaker/production manager from David Bruce winery in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, Foster had been making wine there for 15 years, helping change the focus of the winery from Chardonnay to Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. Ken focused on small-lot production, emphasizing gentle handling and separation of small wine lots for potential vineyard designate as well as appellation-labeled wines. Foster’s hiring further strengthened Mahoney’s Pinot Noir program and wine quality enhancements instituted by previous winemaker, Scott Rich, including use of small, open-top fermenters, new oak barrel regimes and small-lot processing. “Ken is the perfect person to drive our quality to new heights,” Francis remarked. “He brings a wide range of experience and a commitment to exceptional winemaking.” Read less

Went well with heirloom tomatoes with olive oil and truffle salt. Light and citrusy.
