Another impressive offering from Summerhouse. This enchanting Verdelho has already picked up a trophy at this years Royal Easter Wine Show. A great achievement for a relatively unknown variety that originates from Portugal and is planted in tiny quantities here in New Zealand. Barrel fermented, this is nicely textured with stonefruit, tropicals and a smidgeon of citrus with spicy oak highlights. Really tasty and perfect for when you just want something a little different.
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Offering fine value, the 2016 vintage was fermented and matured for nine months in seasoned oak barriques. Bright, light lemon/green, it is weighty and vibrant, with fresh, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak, balanced acidity, considerable complexity and a dry (1.7 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish."
Yvonne Lorkin, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Finding great verdelho is as awesome as finding cold chicken in the fridge. It’s a very satisfying thing, yet a very rare one here in NZ, with only 4 companies that I know of growing it. Historically verdelho was used to make Madeira, but it’s found a new talent as a table wine. Exotically perfumed with honeysuckle, lime, peach and a squeak of toast from a 9-month stint maturing in older oak barrels the Summerhouse is stunning with teriyaki chicken."
