Atze’s Corner 2018 Wild Rose Vermentino, $25

Founder of Atze’s Corner, Andrew Kalleske, comes from a long line of vignerons in South Australia’s Barossa Valley but his eyes are squarely on the future with this crisp, fresh white made from Vermentino, a variety that is only just starting to take off in Australia. More commonly seen around the Mediterranean – we fell in love with it in Sardinia, where it is widely planted – Vermentino has been part of the Atze’s range for a couple of vintages now. Kalleske has been tweaking it a bit as he gets to know it better, so this one has a little more zest and longevity than previous vintages. It’s aromatic with tangy, citrus notes and vibrant, fresh acidity. It’s also beautifully packaged in a bottle decorated with the wild roses that feature in the name of the range, which in turn is inspired by the roses that herald each new vintage.
