Timo Vermentino 2020 from San Marzano Wines

Delicate white floral aromas combine with notes of thyme and rosemary enhanced by peach and green apple flavours through to a saline, zesty finish.

Producer Note - In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'. Through the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 vine growers. Using modern and technologically advanced vinification techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time-honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques, enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir. In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded European Producer of the Year 2017.

Vintage - The 2019 vintage experienced a rainy winter which helped to restore soil water reserves. A mild spring followed with little rain through to a very hot, dry and windy summer, which reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. Good diurnal temperature differences encouraged regular ripening of the grapes, with good total acidity and healthy, ripe fruit. The harvest started five days earlier than the previous year.

Vineyard - The vines are grown in Brindisi, Salento in Puglia at an elevation of approximately 100 metres above sea level. The warm climate is tempered by the proximity to the sea and the influence of the strong oceanic winds. The wine takes its name 'Timo' from the thyme bushes that grow along the rocky shoreline of the Ionian Sea, whose scent fills the air with the herbal fragrance of the Mediterranean garrigue known locally as maquis. The vines are planted at a density of 5,000 vines per hectare and are double Guyot trained, which encourages the best expression of the Vermentino variety as the leaves protect the grapes from the high temperatures, allowing them to retain balancing acidity. An integrated protection system has been implemented which monitors the atmospheric conditions and uses targeted copper and sulphur treatments. The vines are grown in shallow, medium-textured sandy soils, with soil management techniques of cover crops and green manure being used.

Winemaking - The grapes were destemmed and underwent several hours of skin contact at low temperatures to extract the delicate floral aromas. Gentle pressing then obtained the must which was fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast for between 13 to 15 days at controlled temperatures of 15°C. The wine was aged in stainless steel for five months, to retain the purity of fruit and preserve the varietal profile.

Tasting Note - Delicate white floral aromas combine with notes of thyme and rosemary in this elegant, refreshing and mineral wine.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
