Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2010 Vintage) says
This little vineyard in the heart of Wilyabrup established an early reputation for its verdelhos. This is typical with its punchy lively tropical fruit and vibrant bright acidity that sustains a very long palate. Plenty of oomph in a wine that drinks well young but has the structure to develop another dimension with age.

A full on Verdelho with stacks and stacks of tropical fruit laced with a little herbal confectionary. The palate has a lively melony fruit flavour with a crisp acid to finish.

Shows the unusually tangy and crisp style of '08 Verdelhos to full advantage, the palate incisive and long; good seafood style

Full and intense verdelho brimming with beautiful fruit. It's pristine and pure with a crunchy lively mouth feel and lingering light cream and tropical fruit-driven palate. The fine acid sustains things perfectly.

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Lifted, floral, candied fruit aromas and big, ripe, tropical fruit flavours fill the palate.

Light to medium yellow-green; the crisp and clean bouquet is developing slowly, with slightly grassy characters; the palate has similar herb and grass overtones, rather than the usual fruit salad, fleshing out on the finish.

Here is an example of a verdelho showing the faintest early stages of development. As such it adds to the palate complexity and aromas. The subtle toasty infusion works through the tropical fruits and melon characters, while also building the texture and mouth fell. Nice easy drinking food wine

Light to medium green-yellow; the moderately intense bouquet is clean, with that indeterminate fruit salad character of the variety. The palate is pleasant, lengthened and lifted by crisp acidity on the finish.
