Did you know that Ayama Wines have produced the first (and only) Vermentino wine in South Africa, the second vintage of which will be showcased at the Second Annual Artichoke Festival on Sunday, 25 August in Paardeberg. Come enjoy this South-African grown Italian varietal and other Ayama wines while along with a four course lunch as well as a sweet treat, all with artichokes as the featured ingredient.
 
Just to give you an idea of what to expect, a glass of classic Sardinia Vermentino will offer up lively aromas of pear, white peach, lime and pink grapefruit with subtle notes of crushed rocks and citrus zest. On the palate, Vermentino is almost always dry and somewhat oily with flavours of grapefruit and citrus, with a crushed rocky minerality and saltiness. On the finish, it can be a bit snappy with bitterness similar to the taste of grapefruit pith or, if it’s on the riper side, fresh almond. We are happy to say Ayama Vermentino has the complexity of a Sardinian Vermentino, combined with the flavours of South African soil.
