About The Wine

This may be one of the finest renditions of Vermentino in the country at the moment, a clear step in the right direction for this Italian variety.

This is grown in the cool Ballandean Valley, the most prestigious pocket of the Granite Belt region. The wine sees a little time in barrel during fermentation which really ramps up the pace. It's razor-sharp but with a few more gears of texture than your average lean and mean Vermentino.

The winery describes it as "a rich textured traditional Sardinian style of Vermentino." Mike Bennie awarded it 94 points calling it a "Brilliant wine."

Sensational value to be had here for fans of this variety.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"20% barrel fermented in new oak, a small amount of full solids barrel ferment semillon. The winemaking regime shows its influence with smoky, almost gunflint-like aromas prominent. Behind that, characters of green apple and pear show through. Excels on the palate, with lovely mouthfeel and zingy acidity carrying the fresh and vibrant flavours all the way." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Crikey. This leapt out from the pack. Not just reliant on lean, raciness in style, there’s plenty going on in this wine. Brilliant wine. Punchy bouquet shows honey, touch of toastiness, rich nougat, ripe stone fruit and green apple characters. Generous in the palate but ultra fresh. Nuts and fino sherry and fresh crushed apple juice. Tight line of zingy acidity. Loads of personality and so very refreshing. Intrigue and character." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

This is a rich textured traditional Sardinian style of Vermentino. The nose is full of spicy floral tones, citrus blossom, pear and hints of oak while the palate is rich and full with a creamy texture and a long persistent finish. This wine has been further enhanced and enriched through the partial use of natural fermentation in new oak.
