This year's iteration of Verdelho emanates all the beauty of a warm spring time afternoon, if that afternoon was spent picnic-ing beneath some citrus trees.
Aromas of tangerine and meyer lemon play against a lean minerality and hint of pineapple upside-down cake creating a sweet and balanced nose.
On the palate, crunchy green apple meets a gravelly texture to lend a beautiful acidic tension to this wine, with flavors of lemon meringue and fresh pineapple that was picked just a smidge on the early side.
