The Little Wine Co Vermentino
Round and plump with a fruit salad of flavour, all backed by a chunky, fruit sweet palate. Vermentino is a relative newcomer on the Australian landscape but is set become a favourite due to its natural texture and versatility. The grape variety Vermentino is believed to have travelled first to Corsica and then to Italy where it is the dominant white wine grape of Sardinia. It is a late-ripening grape variety which loves a hot dry climate, a natural choice for the Hunter Valley.
