This is our wineries first vintage of this ancient Mediterranean white variety. Vermentino is said to have originated in Spain and is now grown extensively in Southern France (where it is known as Rolle) Corsica, Sardinia and in our vineyard. The variety is renown for producing wines with crisp fruit flavours with refreshing acidity. The 2009 Vermentino displays sweet pineapple and floral aromas, while the palate is crisp and dry with zesty lemon, green apple and fig flavours. Drink now or cellar over the next few years. Try with your favourite seafood/chicken dishes or by itself on a balmy evening.
Verdelho originates from the island of Madeira and was first planted in Australia in the 1820's principally to make fortified wines. The 2009 Verdelho displays tropical fruit and spice aromas. Fresh pineapple, guava and musk stick flavours, with a lingering lime finish. Drink now or cellar for the next few years. Try the 09 Verdelho with Chinese, Thai or Vietnamese cuisines.
