Tyrrell's 2009 Fordwich Verdeho

We were first impressed by the 2007 release and here are my notes from February 2008: "This is from the same quality/price range as the Rufus Stones and Brokenbacks so while we expected a top wine we didn't know what to expect in terms of a verdelho. It's a funny old grape which rarely has the zing of riesling, complexity of chardonnay or intensity of sauvignon blanc. This though is up there with the best we've tasted with lashings of fruit salad and a delicious balancing crisp acidity. If you enjoy quality whites and you're looking for something different, this is very highly recommended."
This is now the 2009 vintage and the only change has been the price - it's come down from $18.
A quality white without blowing the budget.
