2016 Estate Verdelho Tasting Notes

Originally from Portugal, Verdelho is a variety perfectly suited to our vineyard. For a balanced flavor profile, fruit was picked at Baume 13.8 and 14. Grapes gentle pressed to avoid any bitterness from skins. This has resulted in a wine of complex fruit driven flavours, with a lovely sugar/acid balance, and lower alcohol level. ‘It’s fresh, crisp and very dry, yet with full fruit flavours that flood the mouth – like biting into cool grapes on a hot summer’s day. Lovely lifted musky aromas are followed by hints of cumquat and lycee on the palate. This Verdelho’s delicate flavours will enhance all seafoods, white meats and vegan dishes. Great with Asian-infused food as it complements the spices beautifully. Enjoy it as an aperitif, or over those long, lazy January lunches.  Alc/Vol: 13.1% Drink now to 2019
