Bimbadgen Verdelho 2012

Coming from the Estate Range of wines, fresh tropical fruit salad and gentle passionfruit characters arouse the nose.

Verdelho can be very one dimensional at times offering clean and crisp tropical flavours. This wine has a little more personality which I liked, and doesn't slot into that realm.

The palate is coated well with fruit and it was the texture which appealed to me and added some interest. There's a dash of subtle spice to add to the mix which was welcome and a Hunter Verdelho trait. Good length which lasts thirty seconds.

Bimbadgen offers significant discounts for wine club members and this wine drops down to $16 which I think is a suitable price to pay. The $22 stated is stretching it a little too much.

An enjoyable drop all up. Calamari, chips and a beach set the scene beautifully with this drop. The back label suggests roast pork. I'd be keen to try that.
