Pizzini Verduzzo 2013


Verduzzo is a variety many may not have come across. Hailing from north-eastern Italy, it is not to be confused with Verdelho which originates from Portugal.

A small portion of this wine spent time in new French oak to add texture and flavour.

Cut green apples, white fleshed peach and some tropical fruit influences highlight the wine. It hits the mid-palate and refuses to budge and that's where the influence of vanilla oak comes to the fore. The fruit, however, seems to evaporate and miss the back completely.

Although there is refreshing appeal to the wine and it was good to try, it's not a wine I'd go back to.
