Colour: Pale golden straw.
Nose: Aromas of jasmine and nectarine combine with a touch of warm spice.
Palate: Deliciously textural and delicate with flavours of pear and hints of chalky minerality. The crisp, balanced acidity provides a savoury and refreshing finish.

WINEMAKERS : Suzanne Little / Ian Little Vermentino is a relative newcomer on the Australian landscape but is set become a favourite due to its natural texture and versatility. Vermentino is Spanish in origin but is believed to have travelled first to Corsica and then to Italy where it is the dominant white wine grape of Sardinia. It is a late-ripening grape variety which loves a hot dry climate; a natural choice for the Hunter Valley.
VITICULTURE : The grapes for this wine are grown on the historic Roxburgh vineyard in the Upper Hunter Valley. Grafted onto 30-year Chardonnay vines the decision to trial Vermentino is certainly paying off. True to its reputation as a late ripening variety we usually harvest the Vermentino after all of our Hunter reds are picked. WINEMAKING NOTES : The free run portion is fermented separately to the pressings. 20% of the free run juice and 50% of the pressings are fermented naturally in two and three-yearold French oak. The balance of the juice is tank fermented with cultured yeast. The wine is held on yeast lees for four months to add a creamy texture to the palate. A portion of the pressings are also added back to give an extra dimension to the palate weight.

93 pts - Mike Bennie, Wine Front

Great to see the emerging and lesser-sung varieties so proudly (and long supported) by Little Wine Co. This is done righteously. Beautiful wine that feels more seaside than middle of a red dirt, warm climate wine region, but we all know that Newy and the beach aren’t that far from Polkolbin as the crow flies. Soft but fresh texture, lime juice, heaps of pretty florals, a nice saline twist through the wine finishing all ‘gimme the raw seafood plate’ fresh. Really delicious and with some textural complexity. Good gear.

90 pts - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Light yellow colour; cured meadow hay and subtle spices to sniff, the palate restrained and delicate but also has a touch of richness and textural viscosity, as befits good examples of this variety. There's a touch of saline/mineral too. A very appealing vermentino.
