2016 Verdelho

2016-Verdelho

The color is light to medium with green hues at the edge of the glass. The wine opens with fresh aromas of kiwi, Pippin apple, and lemon zest. With time in the glass, a second wave of aromas appears: apricot, melon, pear and tropical notes of guava and mango. Flavors parallel the aromas. In the mouth, the texture is rich, round and silky, yet delicate. The wine finishes very crisp and racy, a multi-faceted wine for warm spring/summer afternoons and evenings.

Food Pairings: Our Verdelho 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.
