(2019) From the hilltop town of San Gimignano in Tuscany, really a rather lovely Vernaccia as part of Lidl's 'Wine Tour' in January 2019. Vernaccia di San Gimignano often has something of a Chablis about it, and so it is here: an unoaked, super-fresh and delicately fragrant white with a touch of blossom to its apple and cool, mountain stream pebble character. I suspect a little lees-ageing has added a hint of creaminess to the texture on the palate, where again orchard fruits and orange-rind flavours have just a touch of saltiness and firm acids to perk them up leaving this bone-dry, bracing and really rather cool and classy. Watch the video
for more information and note that, as part of the Lidl Wine Tour, the wine may sell out fairly quickly.
