2019 marked the third consecutive vintage in the Hunter Valley that has produced outstanding wines. A vintage typified by warm, dry conditions, the 2019 growing season was similar to 2018 only a little warmer. We made bold picking decisions and have been rewarded with white wines that have retained a delicate line of acidity reflecting true vineyard and varietal character. Another exciting Hunter Valley vintage.

2021 Halliday Wine Companion Review

Vermentino is an Italian white grape with a big future in Australia. It laps up the heat and keeps its acidity intact when the temperature rises. Bright, zesty acidity is a significant part of the Bimbadgen Vermentino appeal; it holds everything together and there’s a lot to hold. Tropical fruits, grapefruit pith, pear and fig jam on the palate, in tandem with a warm and generous creaminess.
