Gold Medal, 2023 Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show

Vermentino is from Sardinia and Corsica in the West of Italy where it is regarded as a clean, aromatic and saline variety. This is our first Vermentino, we decided to go for a fun, skin-contact, refreshing style. Citrus peel, tangerine, semolina, ginger slices, fine grip texture, saline and thirst quenching, tight and clean, elan.

Tasting Notes.

Reviews of 2023 Vermentino: 

92 Points, Marcus Ellis, Halliday Wine Companion, February 2024:
"Low in alcohol but quite deep in colour. This was fermented cool for 14 days on skins, with free-run juice matured in old French barrels for six months. It’s the first vermentino for the Leask brothers, and it’s a distinctive iteration, with pine needles, pepperberry, myrtle, coriander seed, candied lemon peel, fennel fronds and a Lillet blanc/dry vermouth vibe. Chalky phenolics are preceded by a classic saline slip and a surprising depth of flavour for the ripeness.”
