Tamburlaine Organic Verdelho 2015
2015 Tamburlaine ‘On the Grapevine’ Organic Verdelho
Grape Varieties: 100% Verdelho organically certified
Verdelho was traditionally used in making fortified wines. It is now widely used in producing excellent dry style wines that are enjoyable young, and also hold great ageing potential. All grapes in this wine are organically grown and certified.
Region: Hunter Valley, New South Wales
The Verdelho grape thrives in the Mediterranean-style climate of the Hunter Valley, producing wines that are intense in flavour and richness.
Vintage Conditions: A portion of the grapes were picked early to capture crisp acidity. The remaining grapes were allowed to fully ripen to allow the tropical fruit flavours to develop.
Bouquet: Jasmine and fresh citrus aromas.
Palate: Hints of passionfruit and apricot with zesty tangerine citrus.
Serving Suggestions: This wine is an excellent accompaniment to full flavoured spicy, aromatic dishes, particularly foods of Asian influence.
Minimal Sulphites used: A minimal amount of sulphur dioxide has been added to this wine to keep it stable and fresh.
Harvest date: March 2015
Cellaring: 5 yrs in a cellar <20°C
Stelvin Screwcap Seal: We use screwcap to ensure consistent wine quality.
