This is one of the country's best Vermentinos. Italian white wines are renowned for their subtlety, complexity and ability to complement food, and the Mediterranean Vermentino variety is a prime example of this. It thrives in warmer climates like that of Margaret River, where due to its incredible natural acidity it maintains a real zippiness and liveliness. Talented Marq frontman Mark Warren picks the grapes for this wine earlier than most before pressing straight into stainless steel to retain all the wines aromatics and freshness. With 95 points from James Halliday it's just an ultra-refreshing yet interesting dry white wine, that's great with food or on its own.
What it Tastes Like
"Quartz-white; has great intensity and drive, taking it past fiano without a second glance. Its core of wiry acidity, with nuances of unsweetened green lemon, could be intensified by serving it ice cold as a pick me up the morning after." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

Vermentino is one of the exciting new white varietals that is beginning to make an impression in Australia. It is an aromatic white variety whose native habitat is the island of Sardinia. The grapes are grown in the north of Margaret River. They are picked early by comparison with other varieties and this results in a lower alcohol (10.4%). The grapes are simply crushed, pressed gently and the clarified juice fermented in stainless steel tanks at cold temperatures. The wine is bottled early to retain as much freshness as possible.
