Nothing like evoking the sea when you’re a few hundred kilometres from the nearest beach. Silver at the Australian Alternative Varieties wine show for this year too.
Berton Vineyards, Metal Range, Vermentino, Riverina, 2017
The wine pours as a light gold colour. A hint of brine and chalk underneath blanket of light tropical fruit and lemon pith aromas. Very clean and precise palate of pleasant light lemon drop and starfruit (carambola) with a patient, chalky mouth-feel. Excellent value and punches well above its price range/weight.
