Mahoney Vermentino las Brisas 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

In 2003, our Edge Club members, like you, were the first to be introduced to this new varietal from Mahoney Vineyards. At that time, we had to explain what, Vermentino is, as well as why, Francis and Kathy would plant it at their Las Brisas Vineyard. We have received a fantastic response from you, as well as the press. Vermentino continues to be one of Francis’ and Ken’s favorites. This wine exhibits white peaches, citrus flavors with lovely floral notes. The refreshing and crisp finish is a perfect compliment to any spring or summer gathering. Enjoy with bread and cheese, your favorite shellfish, or just as an aperitif.

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
