Cruickshank 2011 Verdelho

I like dealing with the Cruickshanks. John must be well into his 80s by now and young Andrew is a tad older than me. Father and son represent the quintessential hands-on small Australian producer that WE ALL must support.
Andrew even delivers the wine as he did yesterday, proudly photographed by his recently acquired $5 delivery van.
They make their whites like their reds with lashings of flavour. Made from upper Hunter Valley fruit this just about sums up the style of verdelho that I really enjoy. Plenty of palate weight leading to a clean fresh acid finish with volumes of layered tropical fruit flavour that doesn't taste like sauvignon blanc..

Our Price: $11 per bottle by the dozen
