Peel Estate 2011 Verdelho

Tasting notes from the Peel Estate website
"Verdelho's great virtue is its intense fruit flavour - it makes some of the fruitiest white wines in Australia. Peel's Verdelho is dry, even though its rich fruitiness can sometimes make it taste quite sweet.
The pale straw colour is shot with green tints, always a good sign in Verdelho.
On the nose there’s pungent tropical fruit aromas, full of mango and guava. The palate is full and rich with loads of sweet fruit flavours, but finishing very dry. There’s also heaps of spice on the finish, which makes the wine complex and satisfying."
Our view: Apart from totally agreeing with Will Nairn's notes we'd just like to add that this is a truly fascinating wine. Wonderful complexity and zing on the palate and a whopping 14+% a/v which is only detectable on the back label. Very highly recommended if you're looking for something just a little different that we're confident will impress.

Our Price: $15 per bottle by the dozen
