First Ridge Wines Vermentino 2022


Formerly Mudgee Ridge, the name changed to First Ridge Wines in 2014. With a focus on Italian varieties, the cellar door is a must-do when in the district for its chic and glorious aspect. This Vermentino is a great wine to kick back with.

Storm King Wine Co Vermentino 2022


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.

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.

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

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.

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.
