2020 had some challenges but we have made some very classy and interesting wines. The 2020 Vermentino is slightly rounder and richer than the 2019 Vermentino, being from another drought year. The wine shows great depth, layering and complexity. This will be best matched with any salty dish you have whipped up in the kitchen. Enjoy – Richard Done, Winemaker
2022 Halliday Wine Companion Review
This has been worked well, transcending any overt smoke issues. Brisk and saline, with scents of apricot pith, pistachio, fennel and bath salts. Despite alcohol on the lower side, the warm vintage pithiness and phenolic chew, apparent. All the better with food.
