Vinaceous 2015 Impavido Vermentino

This is a quintessential summer wine; full of youthful vigour and vitality. Instant refreshment in a bottle. Winemaker Nick Stacy, whose eye-catching labels have helped build up a cult following, has sourced some excellent fruit from Mount Barker in Western Australia and produced an unwooded white for immediate enjoyment. This offers pristine fruit flavours with a steely minerally core. It is a very Australian take on vermentino; the white grape that is popular in Sardinia and increasingly in the south of France. Not a wine for provoking debate, it is rather a wine for quaffing and laughing and enjoying the sunshine. $22.
