Yelland & Papps Delight Vermentino 2011

Vermentino would appear to be doing rather well in Australia, for certain there are many examples being produced and one would hope this is flowing on through in sales.

It has many a quality to endear it to the consumer: light, flavoursome, lower in alcohol and generally well priced.

Opened two examples up on a warm Winter's day to compare side-by-side and this was my preference of the two.  Opening with creamy lemon, almost curd-like.  Fresh and clean as expected with the variety.  

The palate was fuller, citrus-driven and zesty.  A little shell like mineral completed the picture - generous and fresh. Could quite happily sit supping this with the coming warmer months.  90 - Good
