Reviews of purchase "Chalk Hill" Vermentino, 2015
The wine is light straw color with light greenish highlights.
The taste of wine is silky, vibrating, with hints of pear and lime zest. The finish is clean, crispy, dry, mineral.
The aroma of wine is dominated by tones of pear and citrus fruits and notes of sea breeze.
The wine goes well with squid with salt and pepper, a crispy cream with aioli sauce.
"Chalk Hill" Vermentino - a fresh, crisp white wine with a harmonious combination of fruit and mineral shades in taste and aroma. The wine is made from Vermentino grapes grown in the vineyard "Lopresti Block 10" in Willung, south of Adelaide. Vermentino is well suited for the region’s Mediterranean climate. It produces wonderful aromatic wines with bright fruitiness. Grapes are harvested in cool evening hours. After careful pressing with minimal contact with the skin, the resulting juice is fermented in steel tanks to preserve the freshness and brightness of the fruit tones. Aging on a thin cake, which is regularly mixed, adds complexity to the wine and improves the texture.
