Winery/Brand: Krinklewood


Pale straw with a green hue, this wine has a lifted nose of citrus blossom and freshly cut grass. Citrus and orange blossom carry onto the palate and are layered with soft luscious fig characters. A refreshing zesty finish.



The Story

FRUIT: The 2010 vintage commenced with a wet winter followed by a reasonably hot Spring. There was a spectacular storm on Nov 22nd; nestled in the valley Krinklewood fared well and there was no overall damage to fruit. The hot weather continued from late November right through to late January, prompting another early start to harvest. The Verdelho was picked on Jan 28th and at perfect timing with the right pH, fruit flavour and baume.

WINEMAKING: The fruit was crushed with only the premium free-run juices being used. Fermentation took place in Stainless Steel tanks under cool conditions. The wine was bottled early to retain freshness of the primary fruit characters with very fine filtration.

CUISINE: Enjoy this wine young & fresh with seafood or asian-styled cuisine.
