Summerhouse Marlborough Verdelho 2015

Verdelho from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Dec-2016
Full, even, light lemon-hued gold colour, a little paler on the edge. The nose is fresh with intense and bright aromas of white stonefruits intermingling with a layer of tropical fruits along with spicy, nutty oak. The aromatics are mouthwatering and steely, providing cut to the oak and fruit. Dry to taste and full-bodied, the palate has a solidly packed heart with lively and vibrant flavours of ripe tropical fruits and citrus fruits, along with a layering of spicy, nutty oak. The flavours are mouthfilling and the palate guided by light, grainy phenolics and fresh lacy acidity lending drive and linearity. This is a bright and lively dry Verdelho with flavours of tropical fruits and spicy oak, supported by grainy structure. The wine leads to a strong and positive, long lingering finish of tropical fruit and oak. Match with grilled and roasted seafood, poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the Lower Wairau/Rapaura district, fermented in tank to 14.5% alc. and 2.3 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months in 100% seasoned French oak, with no MLF. 18.0-/20 Dec 2016 RRP $22.90
