2019 Auramaris, Vermentino, Podere Val di Toro, Maremma, Tuscany, Italy
£16.95 £15.95 per bottle
A second from Val di Toro is a truly fascinating creature. If you are used to drinking Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay then Vermentino will be a shock to the system. Both fruit-driven and bitter on the finish, its superb sourness balances the faint stone fruit and almond flavours found in the mid-palate. An added touch of Grechetto further heightens the wild, yellow plum and Italian apricot notes. A conundrum white which draws disparate notes from an array of white grapes and combines them in this sensual and alluring wine. You will be sure to fall under its spell.
