Bremerton Special Release Vermentino 2014


The Special Release range from the Willson family of Langhorne Creek’s Bremerton Wines offers just that. Something pretty special, particularly for the price. Vermentino is a welcome Italian variety making its home here in Australia where it suits our Summer oriented lifestyle.

As with many Italian varieties, this is a versatile wine that delivers silky texturised fruit mid palate and drinks well with a wide range of food – seafood, chicken, spices. However, it certainly does not need food to shine.
