6 Zesty Whites
2 x Valentina Passalacqua Calcarius Hellen Bianco, Puglia, 2018
100% Greco. Lemon pith and green apple with a prominent saline minerality. To be drunk chilled, with an open mind, fantasising of the sea. Low alcohol at 11.5%.
2 x Domaine Culombu, Tribbiera Blanc, Vermentino, Corsica 2018
100% Vermentinu aka Vermentino - the Mediterranean's archetypal white grape perhaps? Versions of it are found all over the Med, famous for its lemony aromatics and often saline fresh finish. Lemon verbena, lime. A saline finish with a hint of almond.
2 x Dom. de la Mirande, Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc 2018
Picpoul means lip stinger in local dialect. A lipsmacking, lemony, almost briny white wine. More concentration that your usual Picpoul, this ones brings the fullness AND the crispness that is the hallmark of good Picpoul.
