Vermentino is a relatively new variety to Australia. Widely grown in northwest Italy, it produces an aromatic wine with refreshing acidity. Our 2017 vintage is full flavoured with a combination of stone fruit and citrus fruit flavours. It has an appealing fleshiness that is beautifully balanced by the linear natural acidity, herbaceousness and minerality, which is characteristic of the Orange and Central Ranges region. If you enjoy the freshness and appeal of Sauvignon Blanc, then Vermentino is well worth trying.



REGION: Central Ranges, Orange Region, NSW

WINEMAKING: The Vermentino whole bunches were crushed and soaked on skins for a short period to allow maximum flavour and aroma uptake. Following fermentation the wine was matured on yeast lees for four weeks to allow natural yeast autolysis to occur with the release of further aromatics and flavour compounds.

COLOUR: Pale straw with a lime green hue.

AROMA: Lifted and vibrant aromas of stone fruit, citrus/lime, dried herbs and nettle.

PALATE: Full of flavour, this aromatic Italian variety is mouth-filling with fleshy fruit flavours. The palate is long with an attractive subtle grip.

ADDITIVES: Made using traditional methods. Preservative 220 added.

PEAK DRINKING: Enjoy now and over the next four years.

FOOD MATCHES: Ideal as an aperitif or with a pan seared squid, aioli and rocket salad.
