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 bothered 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.A white wine for the red drinker.
Served chilled this wine will complement everything from tuna steaks to tapas to Mongolian lamb or can be enjoyed by itself. Enjoy this wine in moderation.
