Family Vermentino

Current vintage

2016

Vermentino is a late ripening white grape variety which complements a wide range of food flavours and textures.

Appearance

Pale straw.

Bouquet

Refreshing aromas of lemon blossom, lime juice and grapefruit with hints of sau biscuit and mandarin.

Palate

A crisp blend of grapefruit, lemon curd, nectarine, pear and Bickfords lime juice cordial. This wine has a vibrant and luscious mid palate, crisp acidity and great length.

Winemaking

2016 had a dry and warm early part of the ripening season and moderate harvest period following some refreshing rains, with harvest of this usually late ripening variety occurring on March 7. The grapes achieved flavour ripeness around their normal time and the mild temperatures allowed the development of a rich palate and fuller flavours, with the variety naturally retaining crisp acidity. The wine was blended to express its finesse and texture, combined with the lower alcohol and lighter style, allows the wine to match beautifully with food.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 12.4%

Ageing potential

This wine is suited for early drinking and will retain fresh fruit characters for the next couple of years. This wine is made to be enjoyed whilst it is young and vibrant.
