Konpira Maru La Douche Tropicale De Murgon 2019
When you hear someone say that Verdelho is boring and one dimensional, thrust a glass of this their way.
Made from 100% Verdelho sourced from Clovely Estate's Steinhardts Road vineyard, as per the back label, it's a wine 'made with minimal intervention and maximum care'.
Intriguing textural goodness is the main feature here. Two weeks on skins and bottled without fining or filtration and sediment (tartrates) obvious, it lives in a clear, crown sealed bottle with an eye-catching label.
Apricot nectar and dried pineapple partner gingerbread feels and spice through the mouth. A good phenolic grip takes hold with enticing width and breadth finishing dry and chalky. I'd have a glass with a meat board kicking back with the feet up.
