Yelland & Papps Vermentino 2013

Vermentino is a great alternative for a summer time drop. This is evidenced by the planned increase in production of this wine at Yelland & Papps in 2014. Vineyards will be pulled up and more Vermentino planted. A sparkling Vermentino is also made by these guys, but that's a story for another time.

This wine exhibits lots of lemons and citrusy characters with some honeycomb of all things lurking in the background. I keep coming back to the lemony twang which adds just a little extra zip to the palate. Nice!

Well priced and very slurpable. Chill down and enjoy in the sunshine with friends.
