Wild Ferment Verdelho 2020

Huon Hooke, The Real Review 3 Stars


2020 was a drought year for the Granite Belt and we had a small crop with small berry size and very concentrated flavours in the grapes with a hint of  almonds in the back palate. The barrel ferment with wild yeast has added weight and complexity to the fresh passion fruit and citrus that are always present in our Verdelho as well as some oak in the background.

We only made 2 barrels of  this hand-picked Wild Ferment Verdelho and previous wild ferment vintages have sold out quickly.

We only ship cases of wine, so please feel free to curate a dozen different bottles or stock up and get a case of a single vintage.  Single bottles are available for purchase directly from the Cellar Door.

“Full-ish medium-yellow colour, more developed than the regular verdelho, and the bouquet is quite different: spicy and herbal with ripe mango and guava notes plus gardenia and dried-fruit overtones. The wine is broad and strong in the mouth, not refined but amply flavoured, forward-developed and big. There's a suggestion of oak and the wine has flavour in spadefuls” Huon Hooke
