Causes & Cures Semi-Dry White Vermouth

Availability: In stock

Clean, crisp and refreshing in flavour - just the right balance of strength and subtlety with good weight, texture and citrus notes. An orange, aniseed tang comes with a gentle sweetness. A cracking Vermouth, delicious on its own with ice and a twist of orange.

Causes & Cures Semi-Dry White Vermouth
More information:

This Viognier-based Vermouth is made at Innocent Bystander 'by winemakers with a curious sense of spirits'. "Vermouth has a long and surreal history on the fringes of apothecary, art and medicine", says Phil Sexton. "The medieval treatise 'Causes & Cures' recorded the beneficial and restorative powers of all known herbs and spices." To make the base wine, biodynamic Viognier grapes were hand-picked, whole bunched pressed and underwent a wild ferment in French puncheons and barriques. The wine was fermented to 14% alcohol. The botanicals (wormwood, juniper, gentian, bay leaf, cinchona and seville orange) are macerated separately in a fortifying spirit (a distillate of the biodynamic Viogner).

The resulting aromatic spirit is then used to fortify the 'mother wine' (or the Viognier) to 17% alcohol. It is a cracking Vermouth, delicious on its own with ice and a twist of orange or in a Yarra martini with Four Pillars gin.
