About The Wine
This is one of the original Australian Vermentinos by one of the country's leading producers of Italian variety wines.
The Chalmers family imported this clone of Vermentino direct from Italy in the late 90's. Since then, they have continued to refine the wine's style.
This is a crisp and racy style of Vermentino with all the signature spice and savouriness the variety is famous for. If you are looking for a good alternative to Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, this hit the 'classic dry white' zone with a bit more zip and pizzazz.
The original and still one of the benchmarks for the wine style in this country.
No family in Australia has done more for the continued emergence of alternative grape varieties than the Chalmers.
Since the mid-1980's Bruce and Jenni Chalmers have been responsible for importing up to 70 alternative varieties into Australia, culminating in them establishing the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show in 1999.
They are true visionaries of the Australian wine scene and we are eternally grateful for their forward thinking and courage to bravely plant what no one had planted before them.
They brought with them the first ripples of the tsunami of Italian varieties hitting the Australian market.
