2021 Rebellious Vermentino
RiverBank Estate sits adjacent to the old RiverBank Juvenile Detention Centre which was built in the 1960’s and housed boys who found themselves in trouble with the law. Rebellious holds two meanings; in reference to these troubled youth and to our unique wines being different to the mainstream varietals.
RiverBank Estate was first planted on the fertile banks of the Swan River in 1988 and has grown to encompass nearly thirty acres of mature, low yielding vines, producing exceptional fruit that is lovingly handcrafted into premium, regional, varietal wines, vinified and bottled on-site.
The Vermentino was crafted in a dry, varietal style. Stored cold overnight before destemming and pressing with only the premium free run juice selected for this small batch wine. Fermented cool with X16 yeast and bottled as soon as possible under screwcap to retain the freshness.
A relative newcomer to the Swan Valley, Vermentino shows a lot of promise. A textural wine displaying lemon zest, lime juice and a hint of mineral sea salts.
