Wine of the week: 2018 Willem Kurt Vermentino
It’s not often that we would suggest a zippy, fresh white wine in the middle of winter – but we just couldn’t help ourselves with this little number! From the Alpine Valleys of Victoria, this is a sensational expression of Vermentino (a variety more commonly seen from Sardinia, Corsica, and Liguria) from Daniel Balzer at Willem Kurt. Great florals, pithy talc, fresh acidity, a lick of lemongrass, and some savoury lees to round it all out. Beautifully balanced, dangerously drinkable and voraciously vegan (sorry, got carried away on the alliteration there).
