Collett Wines Verdelho 2015 (12 x 750mL) Limestone Coast

While tasting the grapes in the vineyard during the growing season we were especially impressed by the structure and varietal expression of the fruit. Too good to pass up we purchased a small parcel. In the winery we handled the fruit gently to ensure retention of the primary fruit flavours without imparting any harsh flavours. The Wine is pale straw in colour and has a bright fresh structure from excellent natural acid retention. The wine has flavours of freshly cut pineapple and green apples. Perfect for hot weather shared with good friends.

The Limestone Coast has a continental climate with considerable winter rainfall. During the growing season typically the days are bright and sunny with a significant drop in temperature during the nights. the 2015 vintage benefited from these cooler nights ensuring slow ripening of the fruit and that the white varieties retained excellent natural acidity and punchy aromatics.
