St Petroni Vermú Branco
Galicia Vermut, Spain
Consumer warning, incredibly moreish content impersonating a lemon cheesecake.
From an artisan, small batch producer of exquisite, craft vermouths. Based in Galicia and using Albarino wines as the base for their vermouths. The distinctive bottles are inspired by Savlador Dalí and handmade from porcelain.
Crisp, bright and fruity Albarino wine is taken from Rias Baixas after a partial fermentation. The wine is then gently fortified with absinthe to a palatable 15% abv. It is then aged in barrels for 6 months with around 25 different botanicals, including rosemary, thyme, fennel and sage.
Deliciously expressive on the nose with notes of lemon peel and rosemary leads onto an extremely complex palate. The hints of sweetness are balanced by gentle bitterness creating a refreshing and moreish drink.
