Pecorino is a white wine variety, originally from the Adriatic coast of Italy. It is now used by a few Australian winemakers.
The name derives from the Italian word for sheep, hence is shares its name with a popular ewes milk cheese. Pecorino's home is the Marche region of Italy and was not appreciated by most of the wine world until recently. Now it has become more popular and is now attracting the attention of a growing number of growers, producers and consumers in Australia.
Pecorino wines are often crisp and dry with pronounced herbal aromatics. Occasionally it is used in blends, but it is more often used as a straight varietal.
As there are only a few Australian producers it is included in the Rare Ozzies book.
Hint: You can lean more about rare varieties by using the #rareozzies hashtag in search engines and social media.
There are just a few producers this far but the quality of the wines being produced is such that there is sure to me more in the near future.
