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.
Colour: Light pale straw, with a vibrant hue.
Nose: Lifted citrus notes of lime, green apple and grapefruit.
Palate: The delicate citrus characters flow onto the front palate, which then builds with weight throughout the mid palate, showing hints of almond and pistachio. The wine then finishes clean with a lovely minerality and acid zing.
