Vermentino 2017

$19.99

Brand: Dowie Doole

Our first release from Vintage 2017 and the first wine to be bottled from our New McLaren Vale Vineyard ...

Vermentino is a quintessential Mediterranean grape variety that is perfectly suited to its adopted home in McLaren Vale. Here, ancient soils, minimal rainfall and cooling sea breezes on the warm summer days create ideal conditions for growing Vermentino fruit of delicious intensity and balance.

DOWIE DOOLE Vermentino is fresh and vibrant thanks to the variety's natural acidity and minimal intervention winemaking. Robust fruit characters on the palate are complemented by the wine's superb texture and a clean, crisp finish.

Characteristics

Colour: Pale straw in colour.

Nose: A beautiful bouquet of kiwi fruit and nashi pear.

Palate: The palate follows on from the bouquet and is full and textural with vibrant varietal character. The wine has a long, clean finish and is supported by a strong acid backbone.
