Poe Vermouth d'Pamp
Poe is one of our favourite estates - they make really expressive and well balanced single vineyard Chardonnays and Pinots in California. Samantha Sheehan only founded the winery in 2009, after feeling inspired when she tasted her way around Burgundy and Champagne. What we love about the estate is that they don't try and copy Burgundy in California, but instead really express the local terroir in a very restrained, elegant way. Wine making is done with minimal intervention, with no additives and very low sulphur. Oh and she also makes fantastic Vermouth!
Made from a base of our Pinot Noir rosé, this warm and vibrant aperitif is incredibly delicious on its own, or mixes beautifully into a number of cocktails. A few we recommend are as follows:Floral and bright, with aromatics of grapefruit rind and warm rich spices. This is delicious on its own, or wonderful in a number of simple cocktails.
