Fox Creek Vermentino
Vermentino is a late ripening white grape variety which complements a wide range of food flavours and textures.
Refreshing aromas of lemon zest, lemon blossom, lime juice and melon with hints of earthy, slaty minerality.
A crisp blend of grapefruit, lemon curd, pineapple, with hints of rockmelon and apricot. This wine has a vibrant mid palate, crisp focussed acidity and great length.
2014 had a mild ripening season and moderate yields, with harvest of this -usually later ripening white variety- occurring in the last days February. Although the grapes achieved flavour ripeness a touch earlier than normal, the mild temperatures allowed us to preserve the delicate aromas, with the variety naturally retaining its crisp acidity. The wine was blended to express its finesse and texture, combined with the lower alcohol and lighter style, allows the wine to match beautifully with food.
