Vezer Family Vineyard Verdelho Lodi 2006
Frank Vezer and his lifelong friend and business associate Issam Mizirawi decided in 2005 to make their first white wine. They ventured little more than 50 miles to the east and found a spectacular patch of Verdelho. The vineyard is located in the north region of the Lodi AVA . The soil is clay with hardpan followed by gravelly sand. The days are long and warm, but gets a nice blast of delta breeze from San Pablo Bay every night. Vezer makes a Verdelho that is lush and mouthfilling. The color is pale straw with tinges of green on the edge. The nose is amazing with ripe peach, nectarine , apricot and honeysuckle aromas. The finish is highlighted with just a dab of sweetness to round out the flavor. The acid is well balanced to give a bright and clean finish.
Food Pairings for Vezer Family Vineyard Verdelho Lodi
Verdelho has a very light oak, not to overcome the simply delightful berry taste. The aroma of peaches, pears and apples all make your head dizzy with excitement. Yet as with all Vezer wines you are surprised that a wine this smooth is not that sweet, it actually finishes off similar to the better known Pinot Grigio or the now popular unoaked Pinot Grigio.
