2016 Tyrrell's Old Winery Verdelho

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If anyone can nail the tropical trickery of Verdelho it’s Tyrrell’s, they have worked for a long time with this native Portuguese variety and it tends to thrive in the Hunter region. It shows tropical aromas on the nose with a little honey and spice before a refreshing palate of citrus, and honeyed fruit adding texture. It finishes clean with crisp acid, and recommends itself with Asian cuisine particularly Thai or even Indian.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Nicely poised fruit, with lime and straw notes; quite fleshy on entry, and then cleans up with lime fruit on the long finish

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A showcase for the kind of bright and lively tropical fruits that make verdelho a go-to wine for many touring the region. Here, there's clean, light and bright melon and mango, passionfruit, tinned peach and citrus. The palate's juicy and even - really smooth, soft and supple.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Attractive example; some depth to the tropical fruit salad flavours without the detriment of phenolics; good balance and length.

Light- to medium-bodied; clean, fresh fruit salad varietal flavour; good balance.
