Estate: Wife and husband Barbara and Giuseppe Pusceddu founded Meigamma in 2006 with the goal of crafting wines with as little intervention as possible. Embracing a “slow life” philosophy, Meigamma in the Sardinian dialect means “after lunch nap”. Located 600 meters from the sea in Villasimius in southeastern Sardinia, the just over 1 hectare of native grape vineyards are nestled in olive groves, gardens and beehives.
Winemaking: Hand harvested grapes are late harvested, spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts on the skins in stainless steel, followed by ageing on the fine lees in old chestnut barrels. Unfined, unfiltered, no added S02. 1500 bottles produced.
Tasting Notes: Orange in colour, with aromas of peach, apricot, mandarin orange, honeysuckle, sea spray, sweet hay, herbs, nuts, drizzle of caramel. Orange, apricot, lemon and candied ginger are flanked by citrus acidity and green tea tannins. Lemon tart and roasted nuts linger on the salty finish. Electric, engaging and very gluggable.
