ITALIAN STYLE, BUT TRUE-BLUE AUSSIE
|A REWARDING pre-dinner tipple, also a great match with
pork loin chops with a quince paste and oven-baked.
And so quickly was their first-production Vermentino snapped-up a year ago, it encouraged them to "really get behind the variety and increase the make" in coming years… so that now they've just released a 2015 that really hits the spot.
Modelled in classic Italian style – Vermentino's a mainstay in Liguria in the country's north-west and Sardinia in its south, as well as in near-neighbouring (French) Corsica – the fruit for this true-blue Aussie Mr Mick Vermentino was sourced from a single vineyard in the south of the Clare Valley, and which has given the wine wonderful apple and nashi pear flavours
Excellent as a pre-dinner tipple on its own, at $17 a bottle from fine wine retailers you'll find it a beaut match as well with pork loin chops with a quince paste, and oven-baked.
