100% Vermentino grapes grown in vineyards with granite and sandy soils. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks therefore retaining freshness. The wine is bottled young and it keeps the minerality and freshness typical of Vermentino di Gallura. Pair with Chevre d’Aquitaine fromage. Drink soon as it is just so darn delicious.
Surrau vineyards extend in the eastern part of Gallura, in sunny valleys, caressed by the clean Mistral wind blowing from the Strait of Bonifacio. Here the vine takes nourishment from the granite sands of the hills of Juannisolu and Capichera, the clays of the plains of Pastura and Cascioni and From the scents of the maquis of the Surrau valley.
An impressive white grape suited to warm coastal regions from Liguria down to Bolgheri and Sardinia. Rich aromatics and great texture. Personally, I think Vermentino is the next big thing. Mainly because it is delicious, but it also grows well in the Australian climate. And it ticks boxes for lovers of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
Not a region that has much room to move in terms of increasing volume. But they have been striving to increase quality. A strong bent to white wines is evident and Vermentino is clearly the strongest performer here.
