Birdhorse Verdelho Contra Costa County 2018
Young winemakers Corinne Rich and Katie Rouse making their first vintage, the Verdelho grapes coming from Avina in Contra Costa County. Unusually, the wine receives some hyperoxygenation before fermentation, which gets more tertiary aromas and phenolics while maintaining the wine’s freshness and youthfulness. The result is a very well balanced wine, with aromas of nuts, spice, and tropical fruits and a grippy, almost grainy texture. Just 12.4%.
