2014 Troon Vineyard Vermentino-Sauvignon White Blend

2014 Troon Vineyard Vermentino

Applegate Valley
Southern Oregon AVA
Oregon

Only 167 cases produced
Screw cap closure

A unique field blend of mostly Vermentino with some Sauvignon blanc, the grapes in this wine were grown, harvested and fermented together. This winemaking technique is common in other parts of the world but not often found in the US. But ain’t that the Oregon pioneering way?

With aromas of lemons and cantaloupe and just a whiff of neutral oak, this wine made our mouths water even before tasting a sip. And as this delightful white wine touched our lips, we tasted flavors of honeydew melon, lemons and lime zest with wet stone. The citrus flavors indicated higher acid levels and the wet stone component indicated good minerality, both ideal traits in a food friendly wine. This Vermentino blend was medium bodied with good texture and a slightly oaky, saline finish.

Troon’s General Manager Craig Camp loves italian food, so we think you should pair this wine with fettichini alfredo, an orzo and zucchini salad or Pasta con le Sarde. The creaminess of the alfredo and the saltiness in all the dishes will kick the wine into high gear! Prepare to enter food & wine pairing heaven…

SRP $24.

    There are so many Southern Oregon vineyards now – I love it! I haven’t heard of this vineyard and I don’t think I’ve ever tried a Vermentino. Love anything that pairs well with Italian food, so I’ll have to check this out! Thanks for the tip!

    I’m a fan of Vermentino with just radishes and butter too!

      Hi Pech- what a great idea! Sautéed or raw? I so want to try this pairing now!

    The Troon tasting room in Carlton is one of our favorites. (They have such a lovely space out back when the weather is nice.) I wonder if they would pour us some of this?

      Renee- you’re right about their back patio! And I bet if you asked during your next visit, they would pop open a bottle for you to try. Hope you enjoy it! Cheers, Michele

    That’s a tasty wine! Fresh and zesty. Every time I visit their Carlton tasting room I seem to end up buying some of that 😉
