Description

Vermentino is widely planted throughout the Mediterranean, often along the shore lines of both coasts and islands, where it produces bright clean lively wines with classic sea spray and wild herb characters. However, it is in the mountains on the island of Sardinia where it is considered to produce some the best wines. Here the wines are richer but still with elegance and an ability to have earthy mineral spectrum. These wines provided the inspiration for our Vermentino which was grown on the slopes of Mount Canobolas.

In 2021 we have made two Vermentinos, one from the warmer Hunter Valley moderated by maritime influences and the other from the cooler Central Ranges grown at altitude on the slopes of Mount Canobolas at Orange. Although both wines were picked at similar ripeness the wines reflect the differing growing conditions and winemaking techniques.

The 2021 Vermentino from the Central Ranges was whole bunch pressed and the juice drained directly into older French barrels for fermentation. The wine was left in barrels on lees for 3 months before a course filtration and bottling. This wine is pale yellow in colour with bright green tinges. The wine has aromas of fresh fruits spice and herbs. The palate is flavorsome with salinity, slight phenolic bitterness and a crisp stony spectrum finish. A great wine to accompany medium weight dishes with herbs and spices.
