Fiano originates in Campania and is also widely grown in Sicily. The nose of the wine is aromatic and packed full of banana lolly esters and hints of lemon leaf. White nectarine and lemon cheesecake also speak to you from the glass. The palate exhibits a saline minerality showing great length with stonefruit flavours and a very light texture to the finish of the wine. The mid palate shows generous mouthfeel with just hints of creamy nougat. This wine is made to enjoyed in its youth. Drink while young. Keeping within the region of Campania, Fiano is a fantastic match to slightly acidic dishes like tomato-based pastas. None are more famous from the south of Italy than Puttanesca. Buon Appetito.
The wine is beautifully aromatic and packed with red summer fruits of strawberries and raspberries. There is a floral rose water character on the nose that reminds us of indulgent Turkish Delight and finishes with a sherbety hint waving farewell. The palate takes us to the south of France where dry, crisp Rosé’s are the order of the day. The wine has a fantastic balance, and those summer fruits dominate the medium bodied palate. There is a light dusting of phenolics that give texture to the wine and a kiss of acidity on the finish cleans up the palate and leaves you salivating for more. Pair with a shared board of cheese, antipasto, cured meats and savoury nuts.
As a style, Pinot Grigio is usually quite subdued on the nose, however ours looks a bit more like the aromatic Pinot Gris style. A cooler than normal summer has probably led to this aromatic profile.
Intense white jasmine florals really do leap from the glass to greet the nose, while being further enhanced by notes of fresh grass and cumquat. The wine simply draws you in. The palate is soft, generous & with a citrusy finish giving a great length. Best enjoyed in its youth. Drink now until 2025.
A fantastic wine with seafood. Enjoy with battered, deep fried, crunchy, salt & pepper squid, drizzled with fresh lemon and a bright, sun shiny day.
Widely planted in Sardinia off the coast of Italy, this sun loving grape is a kiss of freshness and light. An aromatic grape variety that shows aromas of citrus blossom and kiwi fruit on the nose. Tantalising pink musk and just hints of tropical passionfruit can also be enjoyed. The palate shows beautiful mid palate sweet fruit balanced by a duck tail of acidity on the finish. The wine shows quite forward to begin with before lengthening to the back palate with that crisp acidity and hints of mandarin skin oil flavouring the mouth. This wine is made to enjoyed in its youth. Drink while young. Vermentino pairs ideally with vegetables and works incredibly well with artichokes. If this is a cuisine that you favour, try grilling a few and pairing with a yoghurt dipping sauce. Just try it, ok?
