Gartelmann Wines [Hunter Valley NSW], Verdelho 2018

This traditional Portuguese variety has found an expressive niche in the Hunter Valley [NSW] where the grapes for this Gartelmann "Jessica" Verdelho are sourced from.
The nose and palate open up with a freshly cut pineapple and straw [the latter perhaps reflective of its terroir] profile.
The searing acid & fresh primary fruit components admirably camouflage the 13.4% Alc, the latter contributing to the glycerol unctuousness.
Whilst my examplar did no tweak my high notes, nontheless this 2018 Gartelmann "Jessica" Verdelho is a lively refreshing drop to be enjoyed now
