Special Release Verdelho is a blend of two of the best parcels of Verdelho fruit of the vintage. This wine was sourced from the Pokolbin Hills and Stevens vineyards which are both situated at the southern end of Pokolbin, at the base of the Brokenback range. The 2022 vintage, in many ways, was a mirror of 2021. With above average rainfall in the winter months, the vines were set up perfectly for the growing season. Cooler temperatures over the summer period meant that there was no rush to begin harvest and we began about seven to ten days later than normal. All of the fruit was in remarkable condition with intense fruit flavours coupled with high natural acidity. Harvest took place in the early hours of the morning when the fruit is at its coolest. The grapes were lightly pressed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures before bottling early to maintain freshness.
An unwooded, early drinking style, the nose has an abundance of tropical fruits with an underlining spice. The palate is well balanced with a juicy fruit sweetness balanced by a bright acidity.
