Vermentino 2019, Munari Wines, Heathcote
Produced with fruit sourced from the Chalmers Vineyards on the Mt Camel range, this wine displays fresh citrus aromas, lemon & grapefruit flavours, good minerality and fresh acidity.
Munari Wines is a family owned vineyard located 11kms north of Heathcote at the base of the Mt Ida foothills. Founded in 1993, Adrian Munari’s philosophy has always been, as many traditional winemakers believe: “Understand your site, its soil profile, seasonal climate variation, and thus grow the most appropriate varieties. Don’t be restricted by the past, complement old winemaking principles with the innovative techniques developed in the new world for quality control. Doing so allows room for experimentation and adventure in the attaining of superior expression in the ‘terroir’ of your bottle.”
25 years later the property’s wines have grown from a single Shiraz and a blend (The Schoolhouse Red) into an award winning internationally recognized portfolio.
Fermented at cold temperatures created texture and maintained aromas. The wine was racked off lees and stored in stainless steel with extended battonage to increase texture
