Description

Tasting Notes

“The wine opens up with light floral notes and mango and citrus aromatics. The finish is long and with a more complex texture than most white wines, Verdelho is an ideal food wine. This white wine grape is widely grown in Portugal and mostly associated with the island of Madeira. This is a significant and complex wine with remarkable versatility”.  Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

This wine pairs well with tofu and pickled vegetables, spicy Asian inspired dishes and fresh seafood.
