David Hook 2020 Vermentino
Vermentino is widely planted throughout the Mediterranean, often along the shore lines of both coasts and islands, where it produces bright clean lively wines with classic sea spray and wild herb characters. However, it is in the mountains on the island of Sardinia where it is considered to produce some the best wines. Here the wines are richer but still with elegance and an ability to have earthy mineral spectrum. These wines provided the inspiration for David Hook Wines first Vermentino which was grown on the slopes of Mount Canobolas.
Fermented in old French barrels, the resulting wine was left on lees in the barrels for six months before course filtration and bottling.
This wine is pale yellow in colour with slight green tinges. The wine has aromas of spice and herbs. The palate is rich and flavoursome with salinity, slight phenolic bitterness and stony spectrum finish.
This wine is ideal for consumption now and will cellar well for 2 to 4 years.
The perfect wine with grilled seafood
