Release number two of this captivating and uber-impressive expression of Vermentino from Storm King Wine Co. Dripping with interest, it is a wine that continued to develop the longer it was open. An excellent wine hands down and if texture is in your wheelhouse, head over this way.

Ray Costanzo would have to be Australia's best Vermentino producer. Find me another winemaker that consistently delivers super high-quality wines with this variety. Try something new this summer and embrace delicious whites like this.

Considered with its game face on, interest comes in buckets - it's the Yelland & Papps way. This is a fantastic take on Vermentino. Take me to Sardinia and feed me all the seafood.

The number of emerging varieties sprouting from the Hunter Valley dirt continues to increase. Some work, others not so. Vermentino is one that is rocketing along and this example from Mercer Wines is a ripper. Sunshine and summertime in a glass. Get in on the action I say.

I've seen a couple of Vermentino wines from Victoria's Alpine Valley. They possess a little more density than lighter, fresher styles from other regions. The food-friendly appeal of this release backs up my previous experiences.

The complexity is in the making not the enjoying. A mega field blend, this slides down all too easily. A wine that is a fab go-to for a casual gathering with friends.

This is such a fresh and enticing wine with refreshment oozing from its veins. I'm picturing sitting by the river with some seafood and absorbing the gentle afternoon breeze. Divine.
A wonderful textural appeal is the feature of this ever-impressive Vermentino from Golden Grove Estate.
