Verdelho has madeit’s name and home in the Swan valley for at least a solid 80 years and hasprobably done so because of it’s roots which, trace back to Portugal’s volcanic island of Madeira,where it is famous for making dry crisp table wines
within a very warm climate
The 2017 vintage was a once in a hundred year vintage with, heavy rainfall and flash floods effecting most of the region at the wrong time at the end of January and beginning of February
. Although the growing and ripening conditions were perfect, Mother Nature couldn’t
spoil this outstanding Verdelho which has the hallmarks of great length and poise
and precision on the palate .
