Country: Australia, McLaren Vale
Tasting Notes: Clean, bright straw. The aromatics are all about freshness and purity with powerful pithy, lemon citrus characters and more subtle tropical notes of melon and pungent papaya. Clean, grapefruit citrus flavours dominate with tropical undertones of melon. The palate is bright and fresh with a savoury, saline edge yet still a lovely soft, mouth filling quality and the faintest dusting of chalky structure that makes it the perfect wine to compliment salty seafood dishes.
Varietal: 100% Vermentino
Pairing: Crispy sardines with lemon and mint served with a radicchio and rocket salad.
