2014 White Label Verdelho
White Label Verdelho has been coming from the old Saxonvale vineyards for many years now. I usually do a 3 pick program for it where I pick early for acid, middle for balance and late for tropical rich spiciness. In 2014 I picked Block 15 (a 5 acre 40 year old block) separately because it had all of the components I look for in the one batch of fruit. It always looked like a perfect block of grapes and the wine has always looked special. The natural ripeness and acidity balance will ensure this wine drinks well young but also will mature beautifully.
