    Product Description

    Tasting notes
    This intensely fruity wine eloquently demonstrates why Queensland Verdelho is gaining national recognition. Vibrant aromas of pineapple meld seamlessly with ripe tropical fruits on the generous palate.  Firm acidity delivers a crisp, clean finish.  The perfect Summertime thirst quencher!
    Viticultural notes
    The fruit for this wine was grown in the Ballandean district of the Granite Belt.  The varietal characteristics of Australian Verdelho’s vary according to the climate, growing conditions and the wine-maker’s art.
    Queensland Verdelho’s tend to display more tropical notes of pineapple, melon, tropical fruits, guava, honeysuckle and fruit salad.
    Winemaking notes
    Traditionally one strain of commercial yeast is added to the juice to enable fermentation.  In a co-inoculated wine, two different but complimentary strains of yeast are added (QA23 and Vin 7).  This practice is based on studies conducted by The Australian Wine Research Institute which showed that ‘overall it was found that co-inoculated fermentations resulted in Sauvignon Blanc wines with a significantly modified … and enhanced aroma profile, relative to single yeast ferments and blended wines.’

      Delicious – the best white wine I’ve had. Not too heavy and not too sweet. Matches perfectly with a nice risotto.
