A Sardinia variety the Vermentino grape loves to ripen late in summer when the weather is warm and dry while retaining its freshness and fragrance. A Riverina style is pale lemon in colour and combines delicate tropical fruit and pear flavours with a zesty lime finish. Made to be enjoyed with a wide range of foods and flavours, Vermentino is a great match for medium-bodied dishes rich in herbs and spices.
