2017 Nuraghe Crabioni Vermentino di Sardegna DOC$32.90
100% Vermentino. Harvested mid-August. Refined in stainless steel.
Straw yellow colour with greenish hues. Delicate bouquet of tropical fruit, citrus, shades of magnolia, and elderflower. It opens with a pleasant sensation of well-balanced freshness, then mellowing, with a long, clean finish. The mouth feel is soft but lively, due to its well-balanced acidity.
Perfect paired with fish (especially grilled prawns and sea bass, fish soups, Mediterranean style baked fish). Perfect on its own.

2016 Nuraghe Crabioni Sussinku Cagnulari Romangia Rosso IGT$36.60
100% Cagnulari, a relatively rare, indigenuous Sardinian grape. Nuraghe Crabioni is one of the few wineries to produce it in purity. The wine ages in stainless steel tanks until it is bottled.
Intense ruby red colour. Aromas with balsamic notes and ripe red fruit, which give much complexity to the wine. On the palate, the structure and the suppleness are well felt, as is, above all, the excellent acidity which is typical of Cagnulari and adds length and persistence to the flavours. A polished and elegant wine with excellent ageing prospects.
Wonderful with charcuterie, medium-aged cheeses, pasta with tomato sauce, risotto, white and red meat roasts. Ideal with traditional Sardinian cuisine.
2016 Nuraghe Crabioni Cannonau di Sardegna DOC$34.90
100% Cannonau. The vineyards are 200 metres from the sea. Aged in stainless steel tanks until it is bottled.
Ruby red colour. Intense aroma with sweet tones of ripe red fruit: cherries, maraschino cherries in alcohol and plums. A warm, strong, mellow and full bodied, intense wine, with a long aromatic persistence. Well balanced and extremely harmonious.
A very versatile wine. It can even be paired with fatty fish such as tuna, mackerel, sardines and anchovies. Poultry, lamb and pork. Perfect with Sardinian suckling pig.

2015 Nuraghe Crabioni Moscato di Sorso Sennori DOC$47.60
100% Moscato. Sweet white dessert wine. Golden yellow. Intense bouquet recalling apricots, citrus fruit and honey. The mouth feel is rich, greatly concentrated and powerful. Extremely lengthy aftertaste destined to increase with the time spent bottled. Sipping this wine gives an uncannily real impression of actually tasting grapes plucked from the vine.
Wonderful with aged cheeses (herbed pecorino, chedder, gruyere), desserts and chocolate.
