Chestnut Grove Verdelho

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Extremely pale quartz; a vibrantly fresh wine with pronounced acidity that will come back into balance as the fruit depth grows in bottle over the next few years.

Rob Geddes MW (2008 Vintage) says
A fine take with tropical lime aromas and crisp body which develops kaffir lime and passionfruit sauvignon blanc-like flavours.

Has abundant sweet tropical fruit salad, but rather less finesse. Friendly enough.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2004 Vintage) says
Verdelho seems to have an affinity with Western Australia - no matter whether it's in the warm Swan Valley, along the south-western coast of Margaret River, or even in the continental coolness of Manjimup where Chestnut Grove is situated. Here it consistently makes a delicious, taut, tangy white with cool tropical flavours: a summery delight.

A less fruity and fleshy example than previous vintages of this variety, which really have set something of a benchmark in this state. Still retains the lovely ripe tropical fruits of verdelho but I think I like this new direction, if indeed it is that and not simply a vintage thing

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; a quite complex bouquet; both here and on the round, fleshy palate some attractive yellow peach flavours give the wine substance and interest.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet has real character, with varietally-typical tropical/canned fruit salad aromas. The palate doesn't offer quite as much as the bouquet suggests, but it does have good length and acidity, and all in all, is a very good example of the variety.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the bouquet is fragrant, with tropical fruit salad aromas providing plenty of character. The palate follows on in fine fashion, with passionfruit and tropical fruit salad flavours, yet finishes pleasantly dry. Excellent example of varietal Verdelho.
