This current release is a light green coloured wine. Engaging fresh tropical fruit aromas of guava, melon, pineapple and honeysuckle.
Minerally, punchy and spicy upon entry. Not a fat wine but has a generous flavour profile that again reminds of a grapefruit, melon and guava fruit cocktail. Slight creaminess through the mid-palate.
Crisp, balanced, approachable acidity drives through the palate and adds to the intense mouth-filling characteristics of the Verdelho.
A little hot mid-palate but it doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment of this dry, mid-weight wine. There's a persistent spicy, lime and melon finish that really satisfies.
There's a lot to like about this underrated variety that deserves more attention here.
