Vermentino taste is a quite difficult to define in few words. This is because Vermentino has higher levels of phenols which contribute to its subtle bitterness on the finish–a taste often described as green almond. A glass of classic Sardinia Vermentino will offer up lively aromas of pear, white peach, lime and pink grapefruit with subtle notes of crushed rocks and citrus zest. On the palate, Vermentino is almost always dry and somewhat oily with flavours of grapefruit and citrus, with a crushed rocky minerality and saltiness. On the finish, it can be a bit snappy with bitterness similar to the taste of grapefruit pith or, if it’s on the riper side, fresh almond. We are happy to say Ayama Vermentino has the complexity of a Sardinian Vermentino, combined with the flavours of South African soil.
If you are looking for a unique taste, this is your wine and you will love it forever.
enjoyable from now till the best occasion, no matter how far into the future you go…
