Ayama Leopard Spot White 2019 consists of 100% Grenache Blanc. Grapes were harvested by hand in March 2019. After the grapes were crushed, the must was fermented with selected yeast at 13°C. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was racked, and aged in steel tanks for a long time on its yeasts. In October 2019 the wine was fined, filtered and bottled. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Bright green apple and mandarin orange aromas.
Palate: Clean flavours of more apple, mineral and a touch of peach.
Finish: A lingering finish with a hint of liquorice.
Run by Italian husband and wife team Attilio and Michela Dalpiaz, Ayama is responsible for planting the first vermentino (a light-skinned white wine grape) vines ever to touch South African soil. Getting permission to plant the Sardinian clone took six years of import permissions, quarantine approvals and propagation before the vermentino vines could be planted in 2014, with the first harvest taking place in 2016.
