Venturing Vermentino

2011 Yalumba The Y Series Vermentino South Australia 11.5% $11

Dusty and a touch yeasty on the nose, with a light, rubbery edge and hints of sweet red fruits accenting the core of baked yellow fruit topped with a twist of lime. Bright and juicy on entry, this lacks a touch of body on the mid-palate, leaving a hint of hollowness before the mineral-inflected lemon and light peachy flavors take over on the back end. There’s a little tutti frutti quality here, though the finish does show a nice suggestion of herb along with more baked yellow fruit flavors that turn rather pineapple-y. Just a little raw in the mouth. 84 points

    Came across the Uvaggio last summer and it was delicious. Great intro to the grape.

    I'm a little confused. I've registered with my Texas zip code, but when I click the link to find a particular wine, I'm given stores in New Jersey. That's a bit of a schlep, I think.
