Winery Tasting Notes
Perfumed and fruity with scents of the tropics, honeydew melon and an enticing “sweet” nose.
Just like the nose suggests with beautiful grapey flavours, luscious sweetness without being unctuous and low alcohol really driving home the softness and appeal of this wine.
Over the years winemakers have made their sweet white wines from lesser grapes or the pressing and other by-products of the winemaking process. We have taken a different approach and actually pick fully ripened Verdelho grapes from our Swan Valley vineyard to make this wine. These are picked later than if we were to utilise them in a classic dry white style and as such develop beautiful but delicate tropical nuances.
We also stop the ferment early to retain enough grape sugar in the wine to give the necessary sweetness. The benefit of this is that we realise a much lower alcohol content making this not only fruity and sweet but also light-bodied in style. No one can argue the benefits of lower alcohol wine in these times. All in all a great package and a much loved wine which as always
should be served well chilled.
