2017 Reserve Hunter Verdelho
Vintage | Exceptional quality, picked mid to late January.
Vineyard | Organically managed vineyards from Australia’s oldest wine region, the Hunter Valley.
Bouquet | Orange blossom and pink grapefruit.
Palate | Flavours of nectarine and nashi pear with bright acidity and a tight, struc-tured palate.
Alcohol | 12.5%
Cellaring | 5+ years, keep away from strong light, at a cool, constant temperature <15°.
Winemaking | Picked when baume was low and fruit showed tropical fruit characters and high natural acidity. Press cut on juice to reduce phenolics, fermented in stainless steel, and bottled early to preserve aromatics.
