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 2020 is promising to be a fantastic South African version of the Sardinian Vermentino.

Winemaking Description

The Vermentino was whole bunch pressed, enzymatically settled and racked after 2 days. Fermented with a hybrid local commercial yeast in tank. During the middle of fermentation, the wine was transferred to barrel. The makeup of the barrels were all older neutral barrels. Half of the bulk, was bottled in November 2019. We are still cherishing some for another bottling and for a double Tasting pleasure on the vintage.
