    Varietals

    Vermentino 100%

    Region

    Barossa, South Australia

    Vineyard

    Vermentino is only in its relative infancy in Australian soils - the varietal's traditional home being the Italian island of Sardinia, as well as the Ligurian coast. It has however much potential for success in Australia, given its ability to ripen well in warm climates, low water requirement and an ability to maintain good levels of acidity. In recent years, Seppeltsfield has sourced a small parcel of Vermentino grown on the Barossa Valley floor, tended to by a generational grape growing family.

    Winemaking

    Only free run juice was used, which was racked to retain light solids, and fermented at a cool steady 16˚C in stainless steel. Battonage was employed to build palate texture and complexity. The wine was then promptly bottled to ensure freshness and to capture clean varietal character.
