AYAMA VERMENTINO
The First in South Africa

 

Origin:
Voor Paardeberg


Tasting Notes:

Vermentino taste is a quite difficult to define in few words. This is because Vermentino has higher levels of phenols which contribute to its subtle bitterness on the finish–a taste often described as green almond. 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.​

AYAMA CARIGNAN 
The Red Pathway

 

Origin:
Voor Paardeberg


Tasting Notes:

Carignan is an expression of dark cherry fruit, blueberries, violet and other floral aromas along with notes of orange peel, black liquorice and cocoa. Well bodied with tannins that have a fine, dusty aspect and fresh and lively acidity with excellent potential for ageing. It’s delicious paired with roast meats, duck and earthy root vegetables.

AYAMA LEOPARD SPOT RED

 

Origin:
Paarl


Tasting Notes:

This is a supple, elegant and very appealing wine with the tannins well integrated, but prominent enough to need 6 months longer to show off the ripe, fleshy black-cherry, plums, chocolate shadings to their best advantage and to be combined to the tone of spicyness and peppery flavours which are insured by the shiraz in main percentage.
