2015 Verdehlo

2015-Verdelho

A yellow color flecked with green hues leads to bright, fresh aromas of Pippin apple, kiwi and citrus zest. Time lingering in the glass offers up tropical notes of guava, apricot and ripe melon, tinged with spices; nutmeg, clove and cumin. Flavors parallel the aromas. In the mouth, the texture is round, silky, and oh so delicate. Far from one-dimensional, this wine is crisp and racy, a multi-faceted wine for warm spring & summer afternoons & evenings.
Food Pairings: Our Verdehlo excels when paired with delicate white fish like trout & Petrale sole, niçoise salad and ripe, freshly sliced fruits. Mild white cheeses, both creamy and hard, along with goat cheese pair particularly well.
