Australia has been growing this variety for about 150 years and this sub-region of Broke Fordwich has some of the oldest vines in the country.Typically, it has tropical fruit with a rich spicy palate and is made in a medium bodied dry style without oak. Our White Label Verdelho has been selected for pristine fruit, finesse and refreshing acidity. It will age but we love this wine young and fresh.
The planting of Tempranillo and Graciano in the same block as a Field Blend is common practise in Rioja, Spain which is the home of these varieties. The grapes are picked and vinified together to capture the fruit of the Tempranillo, acid of the Graciano and tannins of the Shiraz whilst expressing the savoury medium bodied nature of the climate and soil this single vineyard provides.
Picked from vines yielding less than two tonnes to the acre and grown on the red basalt soil of Broke Fordwich, from some of the oldest Verdelho vines planted in Australia. This pack contains a dozen bottles of our 2018 Margan Verdelho.
Bright forest berries accentuated with a hint of white pepper follows through to a rich but elegant wine.
The Fordwich Hill vineyard was planted by Lindemans on the red volcanic soil of the Fordwich Sill in the late 1960’s.This vineyard produces wines of a richer softer style with intense citrus like flavours because the soil allows us to leave the fruit on for increased ripeness of flavor without loss of acidity. Made in the pure Hunter style with clean juice, stainless steel and neutral yeast.
Merlot is a softer variety that has plush fruit characters and silky tannins. Combined with a hint of spice… you had me at merlot.
