The botanicals in this vermouth include native pepper, quandong, munthari berries and truffle, while herbal bitterness comes from angelica root and gentian. It's intensely flavoured in a bitter-sweet way, but remains refreshing.

The Brief
How's it taste?
Vin Amer is certainly a versatile cocktail ingredient where a bitter wine or liqueur is called for, but Maidenii Nocturne Vin Amer really comes into its own when simply enjoyed chilled in a wine glass. Mature wines from Central Victoria using the key botanicals of wormwood, quandong, desert lime, muntries, riberries, black truffles.
How was it made?
Maidenii Vermouth is a collaboration between French wine maker Gilles Lapalus and Australian bartender Shaun Byrne. In the creation of Maidenii they have sourced leaves, flowers, fruits, herbs, seeds, spices and roots from the gardens of both the old world and the new. The vital components, wormwood and wine, are plucked fresh from the colony of Victoria. Maidenii is named for British botanist Joseph Maiden (1859-1925), the original champion of the eucalypt and the acacia. When Maiden first landed at the untamed colony of New South Wales in 1880, he could not have foreseen the wonders that awaited him. At a time when his peers saw only a barren and hostile land, Maiden was astounded at the botanical wealth he discovered and dedicated the rest of his life to studying and cataloguing native flora. His passion for the botanical riches of Australia inspires the spirit of Maidenii.

My "wine" of the weekend, though, was Nocturne, a new amaro (or bitter fortified digestif liqueur) from Victorian vermouth producer Maidenii. This incredibly complex, startlingly original drink started life as a barrel-aged rose, with layers of flavour then built up through additions of botanicals such as quandong, pepper, munthurri berries and black truffle, and a mouth-hugging bitterness provided by gentian and angelica... It's one of the most remarkable fluids to have flowed across my tongue all year.
