2016 De Iuliis Verdelho

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

It’s the blushing bridesmaid of the Hunter but it can well and truly stand on it’s own as a white variety that has as much claim to the Hunter as the more celebrated Semillon. This white lends itself to being matched to spicy Asian dishes. Mike De Iuliis is a real talent when it comes to making wines that personify the Hunter region. This is a bolt of pineapple and passionfruit before a crisp and refreshing palate that delivers immense satisfaction when chilled.

An appealingly fresh and lively young verdelho with guava and citrus accents, crunchy lemon acidity and a hint of sweetness.
