These lead beautifully into a rich, complex and velvety palate which is further enhanced with a fine balance of old oak and spice. Try this with a good Brie, Camembert or Duck.

This beautifully balanced wine has a deep, rich palate of black cherries and chocolate. This interweaves seamlessly with the smooth tannins, that give this wine its velvety mouth feel. Great length and good complexity culminate in a soft, spicy finish. There is a spritz on the end of the tongue due to the light bottle fermentation that was allowed, by minimizing levels of Sulphur in this wine.

You’ll find voluptuous aromas of tropical fruit and ripe nectarines, as well as honeysuckle in this fine Verdelho. It is un-oaked so as extend the beautiful fruit character. The aromas carry through to the palate which is long and crisp. Because of its long ripening time, a surprising complexity and rounded mouth feel reminiscent of a French Sauterne have developed. This will become more pronounced as the wine ages.It will make a fine partner to cheeses, smoked foods, seafood and spicy food. Because of its subtle sweetness it is equally at home with a light fruit dessert….Just remember the rule that wines served with desserts should be sweeter than the dessert they accompany.
