Gartelmann Wines [Hunter Valley NSW], Jessica Verdelho 2016

Verdelho, this traditional variety from Madeira, seems to have found traction in the Hunter Valley.
This example from Gartelmann depicts all the varietal attributes of the Australian version of the grape.
Zingy acid, floral overtones with zesty citrus / apricot fruit primacy are balanced by an underlay of residual sweetness.
A very gluggable, pleasantly refreshing wine from winemaker Liz Jackson which I enjoyed with steamed dimsims.
