Golden Grove Vermentino 2012
Florally, lemony, limey, and a touch of lemon grass, the flavours are crisp with a slight creamy oak edge. This is a result of the wine being made with some partial barrel fermentation. There is plenty of textural interest and this style of wine leans itself towards richer foods.
I had this with baked salmon stuffed with fragrant coconut rice and the match was a winner. Sensational value for the $22 asking price, you won't be disappointed.
