2021 silk purse verdelho

piggs peake regulars will know that i’ve ling championed verdelho as a grape for the hunter. verdelho loves the heat and the hunter is hot. it’s a match made in heaven.

well made verdelho is a glass full of tropical fruits and this style of wine can be made quite dry and also reward bottle age. we often re-release verdelhos at 5 or 6 years of age.

as a young wine, try verdelho with fuller flavoured white meat dishes like pork roast with a fruity chutney.
