Buy Of The Week AU
2015 Calabria Private Bin Vermentino, Riverina, AUD $15
This light-bodied, dry, high-tension wine has a generous, effusively spicy aroma redolent of stone fruits with hints of lychee and tropical fruits. The palate is taut and refined, lean and long, with subtlety and a clean, balanced finish. (Screwcap)
