2017 Swan Verdelho

$19.50

The best white in the Swan Valley using fruit from Faber Vineyard.  Made from cold fermented free run juice. Released as a young wine but boy will it age well.

This could be our best Verdelho ever!  It’s running out the door already.  Made from all our fruit plus some from the Sittella vineyard, we managed to pick around the rain and got the fruit ripened to perfection.  It has intense nectarine and pawpaw aromas, is vibrant, bright and full flavoured on the palate, with honey dew and ripe nectarine flavours and a long clean fresh finish.  Simply stunning.

Product Description

“Some great examples of verdelho, in its simple, readily pleasing style, come from Hunter Valley, Granite Belt and Swan Valley. Faber are a bit of a specialist in the much maligned variety. Dammit, it’s pretty darn delicious when done well. Bring on our home-cooked southeast Asian dinner dishes.”

“More texture, flavour and general interest than you expect from verdelho, a touch of sandalwood spice, blanched almond, marzipan over tropical fruits in the bouquet starts the wine well. Simple, spicy, tropical fruited, refreshing and a touch slippery in texture through to a bitey, zingy finish. Coats the palate lightly with halva-like nutty sweetness too. It’s great drinking here.”
