Verdelho is a variety that delivers aroma and flavour in spades. This version is made from fruit grown on our estate and has fresh, green melon and fruit salad aromas with a hint of citrus bud. The fruit-driven palate is full flavoured and soft, with hints of passionfruit, melon and mango and a refreshingly dry finish.
In warm years, it is hard to tame the exuberant nature of Verdelho, so we haven’t tried to try and constrain this wine. This is a full bodied, full flavoured white wine that has green mango, tropical fruit salad and passionfruit aromas and a fruit -punch (think pineapple) flavoured palate that is fruit-driven but finishes dry. The wine was fermented on slight solids to add texture to what was already going to be a mouth-filling wine. Served chilled this wine will complement everything from tuna steaks to tapas to Mongolian lamb or can be enjoyed by itself. A white wine for the red drinker.
Perfect as a chilled aperitif, this wine will also pair well with seafood, tapas, tuna steaks and poultry dishes. Enjoy this wine in moderation.
