Lightning Tree Sassy Lassy NV

 

A blend of Viognier and Verdelho makes up the Sassy Lassy. A neat, uncomplicated wine.

Lightning Tree Verdelho 2021

 


Verdelho has found a happy home in the Queensland wine regions and this release from the South Burnett offers that slice of paradise.

Twisted Gum Verdelho Semillon 2021

 

Tim and Michelle Coelli run a cute cellar door and rely on their 3 hectare site to supply all their fruit. With testing weather conditions in recent years, they've pushed on resisting to buy in fruit. Here they have combined two white varieties rarely paired with one another. It's a neat summertime drink.

Hillsdale Estate Verdelho 2021

 

This is one out of the box - it's sleek and lean. Considering Verdelho is often lambasted in some quarters for lacking personality, check this. It's mightily impressive and highly recommended.

Verdelho. It seems like an eternity since I've sampled one. It's ten months to be precise. This release comes from the Swan Valley's Garbin Estate is clean and crisp offering good refreshment.

Garbin Estate Verdelho 2020


My first review from the 2020 vintage. This Verdelho comes all the way from Western Australia's Swan Valley.

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.

Gartelmann Jessica Verdelho 2018


Satisfying Verdelho from the Hunter Valley. Lots of tropical fruit within to take the sting out of a hot day.

Pyramids Road Wines Verdelho 2018


I was in the hood and popped into Pyramids Road. It's always great catching up with Warren Smith. A down to earth gentleman, no show, no fuss, just a genuine bloke making solid wines.

Tyrrell's Fordwich Verdelho 2017


There's an award at the Hunter Valley Wine Show for the winemaker of the best Verdelho - it's a tiara. Make of that what you will. This comes from what is said to be a top Verdelho site.

Witches Falls Wild Ferment Verdelho 2016


A different take on Verdelho moving away from the clean and fresh tropical fruit which adorns most.

Witches Falls Verdelho 2017


Michael McAteer, the Witches Falls sales gun, personally dropped a number of samples around recently. He's running all over the place from northern NSW to the Sunshine Coast, he tells me, for numerous functions, retail and on premise sales. Great to see the success of the brand continuing to build each year. He says they send a heap to Sydney as well as their Asian export market too - good stuff.

Verdelho has always been a sweetheart for their customers - they can't keep up with production. Easy to see why here, it's quite a refreshing drink.
