Vermentino is becoming a bit popular these days as people explore different varieties. I can only guess this has something to do with our multicultural society and the availability of some excellent food styles. I think this is an excellent trend.
But when someone goes outside the square, a bit left of centre, does ‘different’ instead of ‘normal’, you have to celebrate and appreciate their resolve.
I’ve had a bit of a head cold lately which has killed my sense of smell, but thankfully (and surprisingly) not my taste buds!
It’s a little cloudy, which is to be expected, but it is not a deterrent by any means. It tells me it’s filled with mystique. Textural, slippery, packed full of flavour and a creamery drink that seems to have so much confidence to it. It keeps you sipping to find out what flavour you’re going to discover next!
A very interesting wine…in a really good way. I reckon it is bound to bring in those that doubt the ‘skin contact’ genre of wines.
