Verdelho is a white wine grape grown throughout Portugal, though most associated with the island of Madeira. The grape has traditionally been one of the most popular grapes planted on the small island of Madeira since vines were first planted there in the 15th century. In smaller quantities, the grape can also be found in Argentina, and has been successful in the vineyards of Australia, mostly in the Hunter Valley (NSW), Swan Valley (WA), and of course the McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek regions of South Australia. Australian versions of Verdelho are noted for their intense flavours with hints of lime and honeysuckle and the oily texture that the wines can get after some aging.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant pale straw colour.
Aromas of freshly cut pear and green apple abound, alongside a lifted floral note.
Bright citrus flavours illuminate the palate, filling the mouth with flavour. Made as an unwooded dry style, the result is both refreshing and persistent, and with a very clean finish creates a delicious, crisp wine.
