When we look at Vermentino the aim is to balance the racy acidity with an off-dry palate. It represents the ability of the variety with the freshness being the soul that expresses a summer and beach vibrancy. The focus during picking Vermentino is to represent that crunchy acidity and the subtle flavour expression of this grape varietal. This Vermentino flatters with oyster, saline nuances in food and it embraces Asian cuisine.

Best Vermentino Wine in Australia

This Vermentino is a pale straw in the glass: clear and bright with a light lemon edge. Ripe red apple greets you on the nose with alluring undertones of rockmelon and key lime with a tease of Jasmine. The delicate nose journeys to a juicy palate filled with notes of white pear and grapefruit, with hints of minerality, highlighted by a slight sweetness on the finish that leaves you wanting more. Well balanced acid dances across the tastebuds to create a sense of mid-palate structure that encourages the subtle mouthfeel with a medium length distinctive to Altair Estate. This light, low alcohol, wine should be enjoyed by itself in the sun, or paired with fresh oysters by the sea.
