Sweeping out from a limestone ridge, layers of the famous terra rossa soil hold firm to the roots of Heathfield’s vines. And its here, nestled between pristine nature reserves and distinguished wine regions, that the Tidswell family craft their cool climate varietal wines.
It’s a rugged land, but one that rewards those who can sit back and absorb its beauty with a glass of Heathfield Vermentino in hand.
Vermentino, a white Sardinian grape variety, is gaining in popularity and our second vintage shows a more developed aroma and flavour profile. Winter in 2015 was drier and cooler on average, with very cold nights in early spring, but fortunately no frosts in the vineyard. Early summer heat promoted early bud burst and consistent warm to hot days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening period, resulting in premium fruit with true varietal characters.
Harvested at 12 Baume, it is a lighter style wine. The 2016 Heathfield Vermentino is aromatic and richly textured with firm acidity. Delightful citrus zest, pear and white peach flavours ensure a perfect match with various foods, especially seafood and leafy salads.
Serve chilled and consume within 2 years for optimal freshness.
