Verdelho is a white wine grape originating from Madeira an island of Portugal. A first for Fairview, yet another exciting wine in our portfolio! As a fresh, tropical style white, this wine is a dream pairing for long, lazy lunches.
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and the free-run juice was settled for two days. The clear juice was racked off and cold fermented in tank and 5% fermented in barrels. On completion of fermentation, the wine was left on fine lees for 2 months before bottling.
|Wine of Origin||
Pale straw colour
Aromas of lemon, fresh green apple and notes of pineapple
It has a full and rich coated mouthfeel balanced with fresh acidity, lingering citrus and fruit flavours.
|Food Pairing Ideas||
The tropical fruitiness of Verdelho can also be matched with the spiciness of Asian cuisine, especially Vietnamese food. Beautiful with our Fairview Feta with Dried Olives.
