Golden Grove Estate Vermentino 2022


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.

Yelland and Papps Single Vineyard Vermentino 2021


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.

Yelland and Papps Sparkling Vermentino 2019


Vermentino has me thinking of sunshine and seafood but this sparkling carries some weight given the style.

Mercer Wines Vermentino Bianco 2022


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.

Susuro Farfalla Vermentino 2019


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.

Yelland and Papps Vermentino 2021


Always an interesting wine, this Vermentino sees 200+ days on skins with a portion of whole bunches. It's also one of those wines that cannot be too cold as its beauty will be masked.

Montevecchio Bianco Field Blend 2021


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.

Vino Intrepido Pound of Flesh Skin Contact Vermentino 2021


Let's crank the dial with a skin contact Vermentino. Every effort has been made to deliver a wine of textural pleasure, and that's been achieved, but the mid-palate thins out quicker than hoped.

Wren Wines Vermentino 2021


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.

Golden Grove Estate Vermentino 2021


A wonderful textural appeal is the feature of this ever-impressive Vermentino from Golden Grove Estate.

Yelland and Papps Vermentino 2020


All I can think of is Italian food with a glass of this. Even calamari and chips. What a beauty!

Golden Grove Estate Rosé Brosé 2021


You could see this disappear from your glass in pretty quick time. What a delight this is to throw back. A smashing label and a smashing wine.
