Alice Verdeca, Produttori Di Manduria, IGT 2022
Possibly one of our favourite whites at this price point. It's pretty warm down in Puglia, so local grapes, such as Verdeca, have built a resilience to drought and retain an incredible freshness despite the warm tempeartures. The Alice (locally pronounced AL-EACH-AY) is beautifully perfumed on the nose with zesty lemon, apricot and white flower aromas. The palate is smooth and rounded with that lovely citrus character lingering on the finish.
