  1. 2014 Vermentino, Chalmers

    Chalmers pioneered this grape down under producing the first Australian Vermentino wine in vintage 2004. The 2014 Chalmers Vermentino from Heathcote, Victoria, marks a decade of Vermentino in Australia and a maturity of style. Not modelled on the wines of the Mediterranean, but inspired by them, Chalmers Vermentino hints at the hard herbs and sea spray so distinctive to the grape but keeps the palate light, lively and fresh. Racy and savoury, this crisp, dry wine shows white nectarine and Amalfi lemon aromas. The palate has a pithy/chalky texture, refreshing acidity and a pleasant lingering finish.

  2. 2012 Fiano, Chalmers

    The high acid, bold flavoured Campanian grape Fiano has really found it’s second home in Australia, especially in Heathcote where it regularly outshines the red grapes on the same site in a traditional red-wine growing region. Chalmers have a museum of Fiano wines dating back over a decade with even the older wines still singing. The 2012 Chalmers Fiano is no exception, melding delicate stone fruits and almond blossom with savoury lees contact characters and minerality, displaying texture and power in the mouth whilst retaining a fine, fresh finish.

  3. 2013 Nero d'Avola, Chalmers

    This variety didn’t exist in Australia before Chalmers imported it. They have led the way in development of the Australian take on the grape and wine style since their first vintage in 2009. Chalmers 2013 Heathcote Nero d’Avola has a pretty nose of ripe raspberry and the classic tar and Mediterranean herb varietal characters, underpinned by refined structure, power and graphite notes from the Cambrian teroir. The medium-bodied palate is savoury with subtle tannins and a fresh finish.

  4. 2011 Aglianico, Chalmers

    The 2011 Chalmers Aglianico is vibrant, showing earthy cherry, aromatic spice and delicate perfume on the nose. The balanced, savoury, light-medium bodied palate shows subtle fruitcake spices, herbal notes and candied orange rind with a pleasant mouth-watering acidity and the fine, smooth, building tannins you would expect of the variety. An elegant and structured wine with excellent potential for long ageing.

  5. 2012 Sagrantino, Chalmers

    Sagrantino is a bold, tannic Umbrian variety that thrives in warmer vintages. Chalmers imported the vines and pioneered the variety in Australia making Sagrantino wines since 2004. The 2012 Chalmers Heathcote Sagrantino is deep and robust without being overbearing. It shows ample dark cherry and plum fruits while the palate is finer than the nose suggests with the sturdy but elegant tannins driving all the way through to the finish.
