2018 Verméil Demi-Sec

Verméil (vehr-MAY) is a Demi-Sec, or lightly sweet sparkling wine. Modern tastes have driven most fine sparkling wines to the dry side; however, an extra touch of dosage makes for a delightful experience.

Tasting Notes

Staying true to form in honoring the 2018 vintage, our Verméil opens with aromas of honey dew melon, honeysuckle, cherry blossom, and apples that beckon on a delicate mousse of bubbles. Luscious flavors evoke notes of honey, baked pear, lychee, and ginger filling the wine's long finish and approachable mid-palate.

Food Pairings

Our 2018 Verméil accompanies well for sweet desserts, such as Panna Catta, and even savory entrees like a spicy Thai dish. This delicious wine may be appreciated with brunch, before dinner, or with entrees enhanced with fruit sauces or sweet reductions. Founding winemaker Eileen Crane loves pairing this wine with a rich poundcake.
