Description

Mora and Memo is the result of the long-held passion of Elisabetta Pala which she describes thus: ‘this was my dream, that is now reality, to make wines able to express my character and my land.’  The dream became a reality in 2013 when Elisabetta started producing organic wines from vineyards located in the south-eastern corner of Sardinia, a rolling hill area surrounded by the tallest mountains of the south of the island. The wine, like the land itself is unique. Writing in 1921, D. H. Lawrence tells us in his book Sea and Sardinia that: ‘This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. It is like freedom itself.’ The same description could certainly be used about Elisabetta’s wine!

Sardinia has a strong tradition of wine production from a range of grapes including the Vermentino grown for this wine.  After brief contact with the skins,  the must obtained from crushing ferments in stainless steel tanks with the addition of selected yeast at a constant temperature of 15 ° C. After fermentation, the aging on its lees follows for a few months then the wine is ready.  Straw yellow in colour with a hint of green, the aroma is intense, with flowers, rosemary, sage flowing through to wonderful flavours with vegetal notes with a lovely minerality and a persistent long finish.

 

Perfect with Shellfish, Baked Seafood and Poultry.
