When we look at Vermentino the aim was to balance the racy acidity with an off-dry palate. It represents the ability of the variety with the freshness being the soul that express a summer and beach vibrancy. The focus during picking Vermentino is to represent that crunchy acidity and the fresh flavour expression of this grape varietal. This Vermentino flatters with oyster, saline nuances in food and it embraces the Asian cuisine.

This Vermentino shows in the glass a bright and clear pale yellow-green colour. An alluring nose of green rock melon, sweet and tangy mangosteen followed by that typical crispy green and red apple. It shows off its youthfulness. The aromas picked up in the nose moves further to the palate. You fall into a soft bed of dried roses and chamomile while that tropical fruit salad presents itself. It is shaped and framed, and goes all the way through, from the front of your palate to the back. It has volume and capacity, yet still subtle. The residual sugar in the wine gives you that gentle texture and it accompanies that prominent acidity very well, as it invites you to have another taste.
