Bring back the funk!
Here is our lip-smacking, low intervention take on the famous Vermentino grape from Sardinia.
Hand-harvested, basket-pressed, wild-fermented, unfiltered and unfined, it’s a wine that gets a long, extended time on skins (256 days) building in a funky complexity and texture to what is often seen as a fairly neutral and linear wine.
Brightly coloured with a slight golden hue and cloudy nature the aromas might remind you of pithy lemon rind, honeysuckle, lemon myrtle, almond blossom soft spice and a gentle waft of marzipan.
In the mouth it’s slinky, flowing over the mid-palate with a supple shape; the tension between texture and the vivid line immediately apparent. Crisp, dry, layered and savoury with a long-finish and briney, snappy acid drive propelling the wine along at a swift cadence.
