Description

Summerhouse have been on the scene for a while, but their most recent wines have really grabbed our attention. Aromatic whites are a specialty, and they followed up their Trophy for Pinot Gris with another for the unusual (but delicious) Verdelho grape. This Portuguese ex-pat grape is famous for its acidity, something that is on full display in this dry, crisp and tropically flavoured white.
Aged in 100% French Oak, all old barrels, adding texture and spice more than vanilla flavour.

Smells

An intriguing and inviting aroma of white peach, mandarin, lemon and oak spice.

Tastes

Mouthfilling and dry with lots of spice and gentle lees and oak textures, adding a simple creaminess and charm to the tropical finish. A very charming dry white that will appeal to everyone from Chardonnay to Pinot Gris drinkers, this was the Trophy winner for Champion Other Varieties at the Royal Easter Show 2018.
