Hungerford Hill Classic Hunter Valley Vermentino 2019 (12 Bottles) 90 Points

by Hungerford Hill

$269.00 GST Included


Vermentino hails from Italy’s Liguria region and the Mediterranean Islands of Sardinia and Corsica. Vermentino thrives in the warm climate of the Lower Hunter Valley with its thick skins and vibrant acidity. The wines are light to medium bodied with a textured palate. Produced from the St.

Vernay Vineyard below the Hungerford Hill Cellar Door, it was handpicked and ‘wild’ fermented with natural yeast in older barriques; adding fabulous texture and weight to the quince and lime aromas.


Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion : 90 Points

Hand-picked, wild yeast, full solids barrel fermented in old oak, on lees for 8 months in barrel, bottle-aged before release. Gingersnap biscuits, bruised apple, nettles, dried herbs. This steely, savoury vermentino comes with an interesting take on the grape. It’s built like a traditional Hunter semillon with a touch of texture and acidity to burn in its youth.
