Overview

Verdelho is a Portuguese white grape that came to WA in our early days of viticulture. It came into prominence when the doyen of Swan Valley winemakers Jack Mann used the variety to make both fresh, lively table wines and luscious fortified styles which both aged beautifully. The development of the Margaret River region saw Verdelho planted in a cooler environment. The mild, sunny season accentuated the fruit flavours and the natural crisp acidity of the variety. Ashbrook Estate recognized these characters with their first Verdelho made over 30 years ago. The wine is unwooded.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The Ashbrook Estate 2011 Verdelho has a perfumed, almost pungent, spicy fruit salad aroma.

Palate

The palate flavour mirrors the aroma, the high natural acidity of the variety complements the powerful flavour and gives the wine a refreshing finish. The excellent depth and fullness of flavour ensures the wine will age for at least a decade, when it will display an attractive honey bouquet and flavour.

Food Matching

Served chilled it is an excellent accompaniment to fresh seafood and spicy dishes. The wine is bottled

with a screw cap to ensure the wine remains fresh for many years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

“This estate is one of the quietest and highest achievers in Australia, maintaining excellent viticulture and fastidious winemaking. It is hard to choose between the complex, herby, tropical Semillon, or subtly oaked, long Chardonnay, the crisp Sauvignon Blanc or briar- and cassis Cabernet.” James Halliday.

In 1975, after considerable evaluation and thorough searching for land suitable for premium wine production, the Devitt family purchased and named Ashbrook Estate in Wilyabrup.

It is one of the ten original vineyard wineries in Margaret River and to this day is still owned and operated by the Devitts. With abundant technical expertise, a rare and highly sought after location, an ideal climate and a well equipped winery, Ashbrook has an enviable record for consistently producing high quality wines.

At Ashbrook the vines are mainly grown on specialised Lyre trellis to maximise flavour development. All fruit is hand picked. Ashbrook is one of the few wine producers where all fruit processed is estate grown and all wine is made and bottled on site using their own equipment. This gives greater focus and control over the total winemaking process.
