For me there wasn't the intensity I hoped for. There's plenty of pineapple, pawpaw and some honeydew melon aromas, but the usual tropical characters synonymous with the variety stop there. A creamy undertow is prominent in the mouth. It's a bit like rice pudding in some respects.
Some texture on the palate takes away the vibrancy of the fruit leaving some mouth warmth. I have generally found Verdelho to offer some refreshment on hot days with the comfort of seafood nearby. On this occasion, not so much.
A fair wine but not one I would purchase.
