2017 Verdelho

2017-Verdelho

The color is light to medium yellow with green hues. The wine opens with fresh aromas of Fuji apple, lemon zest and kiwi. With time in the glass, a second wave of aromas appears: melon, pear, apricot and tropical notes of guava and mango. Flavors parallel the aromas. In the mouth, the texture is round and silky, with delicacy. 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.
