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.
