Expression Vermentino

Expression Vermentino Domaine Saint Hilaire

A crisp dry drinking wine, perfect as an aperitif or accompaniment to seafood. 

Vermentino (aka Rolle) is particularly popular grape along the Mediterranean coast of France, Sardinia and North of Italy. Our multi-award winning Vermentino is harvested at night and fermented at a low temperature to preserve the maximum freshness and fruit flavours.

Tasting Notes

Drunk young, a light fresh easy drinking wine with a delicate bouquet of lime, apricots and a touch of white pepper. Develops into a medium bodied wine with super acidity that provides a crispness and real length to the palate. Great as an aperitif but is perhaps at its best with seafood and fish dishes.
