Fox Creek Vermentino

Current vintage

2015

Vermentino is a late ripening white grape variety which complements a wide range of food flavours and textures.

Appearance

Pale straw.

Bouquet

Refreshing aromas of honeysuckle, lemon blossom, lime juice and melon with hints of earthy, slaty minerality.

Palate

Crisp blend of grapefruit, lemon tart, pineapple, with hints of mandarin and lemon myrtle. This wine has a vibrant lemon and lime juice mid palate, crisp focussed acidity and great length.

Winemaking

2015 had a mild late January and early February and lower yields due to the dry growing season helped preserve the aromatics and allowed the development of the fresh, fleshy fruit flavours. Harvest of this usually later ripening white variety occured on February 26. The grapes achieved flavour ripeness a touch earlier than normal, with the warmer temperatures in mid and late February accelerating the development of the fruit. 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.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 12.4%

Ageing potential

This wine is suited for early drinking and will retain fresh fruit characters for the next couple of years. This wine is made to be enjoyed whilst it is young and vibrant.

Winemaker

Scott Zrna & Ben Tanzer
