Grippy, textural Vermentino! Curious and thirst quenching in equal parts.

Vermentino is one of those varieties that really shines with some skin contact and a few winemaking tricks. It adds an extra dimension of appeal.

Case in point is this Pigato Vermentino from Koerner wines in the Clare Valley. Vermentino was planted around 10 years ago on the family vineyard in Watervale, a pocket on Terra Rossa soils selected as best for this variety.

The wine spent three weeks on skins in concrete open vessels during fermentation before being pressed back to concrete and old oak. Bottled without filtering or filtration. It's a winning style, complete with slightly cloudy and grippy elements.

Jono and Damon Koerner are the innovative brothers behind this relatively new label that has been making waves across the country for a few vintages now. They grew up in the Clare Valley, but have since spent time working and studying around Australia and overseas. Their winemaking philosophy is simple – to make wines that reflect their place in the world, wines that are made in the vineyard. Managing the grapes organically, picking them not too early, not too late, and using only those grapes and a dash of preservatives make the wines. The wines are light, fresh, textured and well structured...as well as being highly drinkable! with high drinkability.
