I love Vermentino! Have you tried this white grape variety yet?
This Box Grove Vineyard 2016 Vermentino came in my recent Wine Selectors Customised Wine Plan sample pack (thank you!).
It’s from the Upper Goulburn region in Victoria’s high country (central VIC). Box Grove Vineyards in fact won a Best Cellar Door 2019 Award from Gourmet Traveller WINE Magazine, so it’s one to put on the wine travel list!
Here are my notes for this one:
It’s a pale yellow shade with a golden hint in the glass. The nose makes me think of spiced citrus, marmalade, kaffir lime and a hint of anise. Strange combination I know, but that was what I was getting on this particular day. In the mouth it’s juicy, zesty, fresh and literally yelling out to be served with seafood.
This bottle was sent to me as a sample from Wine Selectors.
