Night Harvest Reserve Range Vermentino
Vermentino is starting to take a reasonable foothold here in Oz, and whilst this offering from Night Harvest is heading towards the riper end of the scale for the variety at 13% alcohol, it still retains some delicacy. It's very apple-like on the nose, with some subtle tropicals and lemons in the mix. The palate is lighter-bodied and smoothly fruited, with lots of apple and citrus flavours, a talcy texture, and a nice line of acidity leading to a dry, crunchy finish. Perfect with oily fish such as mackerel or even sardines.
Nose: Crisp apples, orange blossom and cumquats.
Palate: Delicate fresh apples, pineapple with citrus overtones. Beautifully textured with a crisp well balanced acidity and good length.
