2018 Atze’s Corner Wild Rose Vermentino

I read an article recently (this one) that suggested Vermentino could be the “next big thing in Australian wine”.  Well, I can understand that.  I’ve tried a few and I don’t mind admitting to being a bit of a fan.  It’s pretty easy to like.  This Barossa Valley version helps shore up this headline.

Just like the rosé the bottle is a pretty good looking thing and will attract attention on bottle shop shelves.

The nose is definitely dominated by fresh citrus notes that gives a first up impression of having quite a skip in its step and that is exactly what you’ll find when tasting it.  Plenty of zippy citrus characters here too with mainly lemons/limes for me,  green apple seems to poke its nose in and a deft touch of texture as it sails into a nice dry grapefruit acidity type finish.  It’s pretty damn nice I gotta say.
