Are You Game? Sparkling


Vermentino is an aromatic grape variety native to Sardinia. With its late ripening, the variety is well suited to warmer climates and is thriving in the Riverland in Australia.  We chose to plant the variety at our Upton Run vineyards to hedge against the threat of climate change, as it is used to the warmer ripening conditions. As the Strathbogie Ranges still remain cool, we are seeing when picked early, the lean green style of this fruit is ideally suited to creating a crisp sparkling wine base. 

We started experimenting with Vermentino in our Are You Game? Sparkling a few years ago.  The blend has been the wonderfully poetic Chardonnay Pinot Vermentino.  We noticed more and more how the fresh lively acidity, pear, apple and citrus fruit characters, helped create the perfect refreshing prosecco style sparkling wine.  It was a natural progression to move to a Vermentino dominant blend.

Our new Are You Game?  Sparkling Vermentino is pale green in colour with delicate and clean aromas of citrus blossom and pink lady apples. The wine is light and fresh on the palate with apple and mineral characters bursting through, followed by a balanced acidity and good length.

Served perfectly with fresh yabby, brushed with garlic and parsley butter, seared on the barbeque on damper - a truly Aussie take on the famous San Francisco lobster roll.
