From the windblown island of Sardinia, to the dry inland of Australia. Vermentino is a hardy soul of a grape.
Berton Vineyards, Metal Range, Vermentino, Riverina, 2018
Lemon/lime sherbet aromas with green apple skin, earthy tones of white salt and a little egg shell sulfidic action. Citrus and apple as per the nose. The flavor drops short and the acidity a touch dull and with just not quite enough briny interest. Fine in the sun with a big plate of crisp salt and pepper calamari.
