Pizzini Verduzzo 2015

This variety hails from Fruili in north-east Italy. Partial barrel fermentation has ensured the mouth is coated generously with a soft creaminess to complement subdued apricot skin and poached pear fruit. Crisp acidity to finish, something different for those in search of adventure.

Drink now to three years.

89/100 - Good+

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.
