Something exotic and exciting from Sardinia

In stock


Sometimes it is nice to try something a bit different. The Mediterranean region is home to the grape variety of Vementino but it is especially successful in Sardina, where it produces over half of the world's production of Vermentino. It is suited to warmer climates and as a style, think of a toned down, dry, Sauvignon Blanc with a bit more palate grip. It can be enjoyed as aperitif wine with lighter foods or summer salads and can handle some Asian flavours.

Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Straw-coloured with greenish reflections. Persistent floral and herbaceous aromas with notes of thyme. Medium to full-bodied on the palate with good balance and a long, slightly briny finish makes it a perfect companion to any shellfish. Also served with seafood dishes and lightly seasoned soups."

Joelle Thomson (2016 Vintage)
"And now for something new:  a modern Sardinian white made from the Vermentino grape; a specialty of this part of the Mediterranean. It's a warm climate grape that retains refreshing moderate acidity to balance its medium body and ripe flavours of crushed almonds, citrus and blood orange. This is a dry wine that matches seafood superbly and is accessibly priced."
