Verdelho 2018

Verdelho 2018

The Hunter Valley is the home of Verdelho in Australia. It is an early ripening variety that is ideally suited to our growing conditions. Crisp, refreshing and fruit driven, Verdelho is the perfect companion to a long summer lunch.

Viticulture

The grapes for this wine are sourced from two vineyards in the Broke-Fordwich sub-region of the Hunter Valley. We harvest one vineyard at lower sugar levels to give the final blend a good acid structure and the other vineyard is harvested at a higher sugar level to get the fuller tropical flavours that make this wine so delicious.

Winemaking Notes

Only the free-run portion of the fruit is used to produce this wine, thereby maximising the intensity of the flavours. The juice was then fermented at 13C in Stainless Steel ensuring a steady fermentation period. The wine was held on yeast lees for 6 months to add flavour complexity and a creamy texture to the palate.

Tasting Notes

Our Verdelho is loaded with tropical fruit flavours and a long citrus finish. Harvested from mature vines in the Hunter Valley, this wine was made without the use of oak to showcase the true flavours of the vineyard. The fuller flavours and great texture of Verdelho make it a great choice with a wide variety of dishes or simply by itself.
