Viticulture and Harvest

Grown on the di Lusso Estate vineyard. The vineyard was bunch thinned to reduce the yield by 30%. Adequate shade is crucial for Vermentino, so as to ensure the hot summer sun does not burn the fruit’s skin.

The 2017 Vermentino was picked earlier than in previous years, to aim for a wine with a greater freshness of acid and lower alcohol.

Winemaking

The skin of Vermentino has very soft phenolics, allowing for the free run and pressings fractions of the juice to be combined immediately. The wine settled and racked, with this year’s juice allowed to contain a higher level of solids. This allows for greater ferment nutrients and a slightly fuller palate. The juice was fermented at 13 degrees with a combination of Italian yeasts that are favoured for their citrus and tropical characters.

Tasting Notes

An aromatic mesh of honeysuckle and lemon blossom provide an opening cue to the wine’s palate, which follows through as an infusion of green apple, honeydew melon, lemon and a slight touch of sage.
