THE YEAR THAT
We had heaps of ‘hen & chicken’ in the Vermentino

This Vermentino is a light, fresh and crisp little number that will make you feel like an invigorating sea breeze is whipping through your hair. Smash it down with anything fresh from the sea or a spicy Vietnamese salad.

AROMA
A native of Italy, Vermentino is generating a lot of interest in the wine community due to its heat tolerance and ability to produce beautiful crisp and fresh wines, perfect for the Australian palate. This minimal intervention Vermentino is made with indigenous yeast, has no added acid and is made without the use of oak.
PALATE
Zesty lemony acid, fresh honey florals and sea breeze, touch of fruit tingle on the finish. Talcum powder tannins give a savoury line. No brainer with fresh seafood!

WHAT THE WRITERS HAVE TO SAY

2020
Windsor Dobbin - wine of the week

Vermentino is a grape primarily found in Sardinia and Corsica, but is making itself very much at home in warm Australian wine regions, where it produces crisp and fresh dry wines. This was one of three impressive 2020 new releases from sixth-generation winemaker Corinna Wright at Oliver's Taranga in McLaren Vale. The other duo were a delightful fiano and a feisty mencia rosé but this was my favourite by a short half head. It is unoaked, fruity, zippy and zesty and a perfect partner for seafood dishes. Damn good value, too. And very refreshing.

James Suckling- 2020 vintage

This has a vibrant array of fresh lemons, sliced pears and some light herbal accents with a palate that delivers such sleek, smooth and fresh lemon and pear flavors. So fresh and vibrant. Love the piquant finish.

Pale lemon hues. Lifted nose, mango and guava with sea spray hints. Citrus fruits drive attack and then rolls into some oyster-shell savoury layers. Touch of flint-smoke as well. Texturally complex with high-toned acid, mid-palate weight then a drying phenolic finish. Lovely tension between sweet and savoury.
