100% Verdelho from the Hawkes Bay region. Verdelho is a traditional and famous variety from the Portuguese island of Madeira where for many centuries it has been used in the production of fortified wine.
Fruit was harvested and gently pressed before fermentation in both tank and aged French oak barrels. The wine in barrels was fermented with indigenous yeasts and left on lees until blending and bottling. The tank ferments were cool fermented to capture the pure aromatics and flavours.
Esk Valley have been pioneers of this variety in New Zealand, producing a dry-style Verdelho since 2002. This is a full-bodied wine with a fresh acidity, exhibiting the exotic flavours and aromas of peach, passionfruit and mandarin.
