2017 Gartelmann 'Jessica' Verdelho
The palate demonstrates that the winemaker really understands this variety. In the mouth it is unctuous and rich with a subtle fruit sweetness acid balance. The finish is light and refreshing rendering this wine eminently drinkable.
FOOD MATCHING: Gourmet fish 'n chips, or a sensational antipasto platter that glistens with seafood, vegies, lighter meats and soft cheeses.
VINTAGE: The Hunter 2017 vintage was outstanding, with average rainfalls and temperatures, allowing for optimal ripening and flavours.
CELLARING: Drink now as a young wine or cellar up to late 2018.
