    TEN TOP VERMOUTHS TO TRY
    “This aromatised wine is made from Marsanne, infused with cinchona bark and botanicals including orange rind, lychee and green tea. Intense and sweet – best served as an aperitif, with soda and ice.”
    Max Allen, Gourmet Traveller Wine.

     



    “The forgotten aromatised wine, Quinquina is hard to pronounce (think ka-kina) but very easy to drink. Like vermouth, it can be found in red and white varieties but uses cinchona bark rather than wormwood as a central ingredient. This delightful iteration uses a base of Marsanne and the bitterness of the cinchona is offset with herbal notes and sweet citrus flavours. Look out for hints of lychee and lemongrass as well in this versatile drink that is perfect in a spritz on a warm spring day.”

    Alexis Buxton-Collins, Broadsheet Adelaide.
