Chalk Hill Il Vivace Vermentino, McLaren Vale

Chalk Hill Il Vivace Vermentino, McLaren Vale

Vibrant and aromatic, this wine shows lifted tropical fruit with dried fennel notes. The palate is bursting with fresh tropical fruits and dried herbs; zesty, it shows a minerality that sets up the fresh and dry finish. This light unoaked wine, which undergoes a period of lees ageing, shows just how well the Vermentino grape can perform in McLaren Vale's coastal vineyards. The grapes come from a single vineyard site in Willunga which is about two miles from one of the local beaches.
