About

Vermentino is one of the emerging Italian white grape varieties that is proving very successful in Australia, and Jo once again sums it up perfectly: "It’s just such a great, accessible variety and I think a really good alternative to Sauv Blanc or Pinot G." As she told us, "it's all about picking at the right time with Vermy, you want those great ripe fruit flavours but also the acid to keep it fresh." There's some really clever winemaking in this, with wild yeasts, full solids, partial malo and lees stirring all adding subtly chewy texture to the pristine and pure fruit. Jo calls this wine 'The Versatile' and that's exactly what it is - great with food, great as a refreshing Summer white, great as a thought-provoking conversation starter.

What it Tastes Like

Love the nose. Lavender, river stones, with weight and an easy flow. It has a gentle creaminess which gives it a soft, pillowy feel. Juicy and full of tropical fruit flavour, a touch of citrus and a dainty herbal character. Such a slick wine - great all-rounder. Beautifully put together by Jo.
