Vermentino

Seppeltsfield 'Village' Barossa Vermentino 2021



The 2021 Seppeltsfield Barossa Vermentino was sourced from the Northern side of the Barossa. Due to its natural fruit bearing vigour, the Vermentino vines were shoot-thinned, allowing for balanced yields of high quality bunches.

Vermentino is only in its relative infancy in Australian soils – the variety’s traditional home being the Italian island of Sardinia, as well as the Ligurian coast. It has great potential in Australia, given it’s ability to ripen well in warm climates, low water requirement and an ability to maintain good levels of acidity.

Lifted nose of verbena, pot pourri, violets and lime leaf, a powerful citrus palate with enticing notes of pear and grapefruit, a fine structural mineral acid backbone.

COLOUR

Pale straw and fluorescent lime green hues.

AROMA

Lifted notes of pot pourri, elemental Tahitian lime with powdery talc mineral complexity.

PALATE

Tantalising mineral acidity embraces the palate immediately. Crunchy nashi pear melds with mid palate complexity and lemon barley, subtended by an enduring natural acidity.

FOOD PAIRING

Sardines, kingfish sashimi, garlic prawns, blood orange and black olive salad.

VARIETY (%)

Touriga (100%)
