Verdelho Marlborough

Verdelho 2017Winemakers Tasting Notes

An expressive, full bodied Verdelho, with lifted aromas of honeysuckle, kaffir lime and peach. A touch of spicy oak, combines with creamy nuances to add palate weight and complexity. A succulent wine with fine fruit flavours that linger to a gentle, silky finish. Only 1,600 bottles were made, each of them individually numbered.

Cellaring

Drinking well in it’s youth this wine will age gracefully and reward further careful cellaring over the next 4-5 years.

Suggested Food Pairing

Match to a range of shellfish dishes, or a fresh goat’s cheese salad.
