Food Suggestions
Delicious on its own and versatile with food, the first choice being anything from the ocean as this wine was born to an island rich in seafood variety and abundance.
In The Vineyard
The run up to ripening was very dry with insufficient winter rains and very little during budding. Heavy winds in November and December did not help water retention of the small amounts of falling vapor. Vermentino however is used to a limited water supply and this clone from the Italian island of Sardinia flourishes on rock and sun with little water.
In The Cellar
Grapes were whole bunch pressed to lessen extraction of tannins and ensure a cleaner fruit expression. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and the wine was kept on its primary fine lees till preparations were made to bottle on 27 April 2017.
Additional Information
Morgenster Vespri 2017, made from Vermentino, marks the entrance of the fourth of Giulio Bertrand’s opera themed Italian Collection wines and is part of his project to produce excellent wine in South Africa from Italian cultivars.
