Vivacious verdelho

Vinden Estate Verdelho 2017, Hunter Valley, AUD $30

This is a refreshing verdelho: not sweet or tropical, but showing clean, fresh straw and hay and restrained mineral aromas and flavours. It’s refined and more-ish with good fruit depth, precision and length, but it’s also delicate and invites another sip. Trophy winner at the 2017 Hunter Valley Wine Show. (Screwcap)
