The 5OS Project 2018 Vermentino
Colour: Pale lemon Nose: An abundance of citrus fruit, white flowers and a distinct nuttiness at the close. Palate: Lime, grapefruit, green apple, white flower, almond and cashew come to the fore. The acid line is tight and bright. A hint of mineral at the back lends a delicious bitterness that is redolent of top Italian styles.
Vineyard: 100% Vermentino from McLaren Vale's Lopresti Vineyard. Winemaking: De-stemmed into 100% stainless steel for a slow ferment to build complexity. No oak used or needed to maintain freshness.
