Mr. Mick Vermentino 2021
Our ‘easy-going’ Vermentino creates interest amongst the crowd and satisfies many tastes. Being a popular Italian variety, it’s origin on the island of Sardinia, Vermentino also suits a broad array of cuisine, perfect for our Australian food culture.
The wine has lifted grapefruit, apple and pear aromas and flavours, modelled in the classic Italian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness to balance the refreshing crushed rock minerality and spritely natural acidity.
Mr. Mick Sangiovese 2021
The Italian variety, Sangiovese continues to gain popularity in Australia and with its roots happy to be in Clare Valley soils, this unoaked ‘easy-going’ wine style fits in to our repertoire perfectly, delivering vibrant flavours that create great conversation and satisfy many palates. The wine is light in style, packed with juicy raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours, refreshing natural acidity and soft silky tannins.
Mr. Mick Grenache 2021
This un-oaked style, born in the south-east of France and popular world-wide, continues the Mr. Mick philosophy of bringing innovative winemaking concepts to our Australian consumers. This attractive Grenache is an ‘easy drinking’ fruit forward wine that creates interest and satisfies many tastes. It is made to suit a broad array of cuisine and drinking environments, light in style with juicy and savoury red berry fruit, a hint of varietal Grenache spice and soft, silky natural tannin.
The 2021 growing season was nothing shy of ideal. Good winter rains led to a relatively dry spring, followed by summer conditions that were the coolest on record since 2002. October to February were statistically cooler than the long-term average. The impact of these conditions is evident in the quality of fruit and resultant wines. Flavour, sugar and acid balance in all varieties is as good as we have seen.
The winemakers suggest the following food matches:
Vermentino – Seafood, pasta or pork dishes
Sangiovese – Mediterranean inspired cuisine, including Italian favourites, pizza and pasta
Grenache – Duck and mushroom dishes
