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.
Named after K.H. (Mr Mick) Knappstein, a legend within the Australian winemaking industry. One of Mr Mick’s passions in life was to make wines for everyone to enjoy, a tradition his last apprentice, local winemaker Tim Adams continues in his name. Today Tim and his wife Pam are proud custodians of the landmark Leasingham property. Mr Mick once said there were two types of people in the world: those who were born in Clare and those who wished
they had been. In 1987 Mr Mick received an order of Australia for services to the wine industry.
