Complex and Age Worthy

Verdelho is a white grape variety that is grown primarily in Portugal and Spain. It is one of the four noble grapes used to produce Madeira. The grape is also used to make dry white wines in Australia, particularly in the Hunter Valley region. The history of Verdelho can be traced back to the 15th century when Portuguese explorers brought it to the island of Madeira from Crete. The grape quickly gained popularity due to its ability to produce high-quality wines that were well-suited for aging.

Verdelho wines are typically medium-bodied with high acidity and moderate alcohol levels. They are known for their intense aromas of tropical fruits, such as pineapple, mango, and passionfruit. On the palate, Verdelho wines are typically dry, with flavours of citrus fruits, stone fruits, and a subtle minerality. When used to make Madieira, the wines have a distinctive nutty character, obtained from the oxidative ageing process.
