Verdelho originated in Portugal and has acclimatized itself well to the McLaren Vale's maritime climes. One of the very first varietals planted in McLaren Vale circa 1825, Verdelho is a beguiling variety, its generous and vibrant characters evoke an array of stylistic influences, making it a highly fashionable wine with wide versatility. Chapel Hill showcases the three distinct flavour profiles of Verdelho, grassy, pungent characters, tropical fruit flavours and beautifully scented honeysuckle blossom perfumes.
Grapes are sourced from the Chapel Hill Kangarilla property, located along the foot hills at the base of Mt Lofty Ranges. The gully winds and higher altitude create a cooler mesoclimate than the McLaren Vale floor. Some vines are fully shaded and picked early for grassy herbaceous characters. Another portion is harvested at medium ripeness for it's tropical fruit salad flavours and the balance is left to hang until full bloom of honeysuckle is achieved. The wine is bottled immediately after fermentation to protect this unique flavour profile. Grapes are cold pressed and racked, free run juices are cool fermented in tank without barrel ageing, completely unwooded and unoaked. Alcohol 12.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep straw green, a richly hued wine. Expressions of kaffir lime leaf, gooseberry and honeysuckle, guava and passionfruit. Verdelho's luscious, generous and vibrant flavour renders it perfectly compatible to a myriad of cuisines and occasions. A consequence of the phased harvesting, Chapel Hill displays an intriguing array of flavours, complex stonefruits and buttered toast, the characteristic honey tones continue to soften demonstrably. A flavoursome luncheon white that's equally comfortable alongside robust foods like stir fries, chilli or crispy pork.
