The 2018 vintage is a blend of Viognier (40%), Vermentino (30%) and Chardonnay (30%). The Vermentino, native to Sardinia and Corsica and thus well suited to the Eastern Mediterranean climate, adds citrus, mineral and even marine character. It is moderate in alcohol and combines well with the rich, buttery even oily Chardonnay and fragrant aromatic Viognier.
The color is a lemon yellow with pears, lime and pineapple on the nose – there is also a hint of jasmine. On the palate the tropical fruits, quince and lemon zest and it has a long fresh finish with balanced acidity. Drink within two to three years from harvest.
