About The Wine

Spinifex’s white wines rarely receive the same fanfare as their reds, but this little Vermentino - a new addition to the high value ‘Miette’ range - is delicious.

Winemaker Peter Schell often uses Vermentino in his better known white blend ‘Lola’ where its structure and natural acid makes it an important blending component. As a stand alone variety though, Vermentino has been gathering steam and works well as a fresh, fruit-forward alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.

This is a lovely example. It comes from a small vineyard in the far north of the Barossa, where it’s able to ripen late and build nice ripe flavour whilst maintaining its freshness. It’s fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and old large format oak, before spending 7 months on its lees to build in more texture.

Interest and drinkability at a great price point, and yet another feather in the Spinifex cap.

What It Tastes Like

Delicate aromas of citrus, herbs, nuts and bath salts. The palate has nice weight and breadth to it, with flavours of lemons and apples and mineral hints. Well integrated acid helps balance things. Simple but interesting and very pleasant!
