White Wine /// Vermentino // Sardinia / Italy
I've always liked Vermentino for it's clarity and smashability, and mostly because when one drinks it they are generally on holiday. It is a frivilous style usually, devoid of any texture or mystery. This is different, it has all of the freshness and zip but with some extra layers and verve. Still hella smashable but with mystique - a rare Vermentino with soul!
I ask Mick is this his first white, he says technically yes, as he fucked up the first a few years ago!
Pithy and expressive, this exciting white boasts aromatic notes of dry summer grass, dried herbs, roasted nuts, peach stones and pithy pear drop. The palate has definition and balance with a tangy freshness, juicy pear pastille, green apple purée and candied yellow orchard fruit notes. A fine maiden Vino Bianco release from this winery. 91 POINTS, WINE SAFARI
