Little Wine Co 2019 Verdelho
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.
The grapes for this wine were sourced from two vineyards in the Broke-Fordwich region of the Hunter. We pick the two sites at differrent ripeness levels to create the perfect balance of ripe tropical flavours and a nice zesty lift.
Only the free-run portion of the fruit was used to produce this wine, thereby maximizing the intensity of the flavours. The juice was then fermented at 13 degrees in stainless steel ensuring a steady fermentation period. The wine was held on yeast lees for 4 months to add flavour complexity and a creamy texture to the palate.
This Verdelho is loaded with tropical fruit flavours and a long citrus finish. The fuller flavours and great texture of Verdelho make it a great choice with a wide variety of dishes or simply by itself.
