If anyone can nail the tropical trickery of Verdelho, it’s Tyrrell’s, as 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.
A quality wine designed for immediate enjoyment.
Winemaker’s Notes: The Verdelho grapes for this wine were harvested from selected vineyards within the Hunter Valley, and the resulting free-run juice was cool-fermented to retain its inherent fragrant qualities. A small amount of residual sugar was left in the wine for added complexity and fruit weight. Soon after fermentation the finished wine was fined, filtered and bottled.
Tasting Notes: Fresh and lively with an intense sweet tropical nose with lifted spice aromas. Rich tropical fruit and honey flavours fulfil the palate and are complemented by a crisp lemony finish.
Serving Suggestion: Serve slightly chilled. An ideal accompaniment to chicken, seafood and spicy Asian, Mexican and Indian dishes.
