Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino

Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino

Fowles Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino. 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.

Are You Game Sparkling Vermentino – 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.

We love to source our food from the wild or grow it at home. Nothing beats the taste of food and wine as nature intended it – real: pure, slow grown and full of flavour. So like us, why not keep it real and go wild with food and wine matching…
Real Wine for Real Food. Are you Game?

Fowles Wine

Fowles Wine comes from the very cool-climate of the Strathbogie Ranges in Victoria. Amongst other innovations, they have pioneered wine specifically blended to match wild game. Whilst winning many of the best ‘traditional’ awards in the Australian wine scene and being named a “Winery to Watch” by Wine Spectator, Fowles Wine has a culture of doing things differently! (They are also the largest winery in Australia controlled by Gen Y.)

New South Wales

Australia’s first vines were planted in New South Wales on the Farm Cove foreshore. The first commercial wine was made there, and the first wine exported to England – by Gregory Blaxland in 1823. Given the size and climate diversity of NSW and its large population, it is surprising that the state does not play a bigger role in Australian wine. It is a state of great contrasts, from the huge, flat expanse of irrigated vineyards in the Riverina area near Griffith to the high uplands of Mudgee in the north. The Hunter Valley is the most recognised region within NSW, famous for its long-lived Semillons and unique styled Shiraz. Riverina is the largest wine-producing region. The more recent viticultural developments are within the regions along the Great Dividing Range: Mudgee, Orange, Cowra, Hilltops etc. There is much promise and interest in the wines now being produced within these regions.


“At home in Sardinia, Liguria and coastal Toscana Vermentino is extremely durable and resistant to both heat and drought. Producing crisp, light to medium bodied white wines sometimes with a herbal hint, this variety can produce exceptional wines
