2022 Verdicchio, Beechworth
Hand-picked and chilled overnight before being whole-bunch pressed. We gentle pressed the fruit in order to avoid excessive phenolic extraction. The wine was fermented in stainless steel. After the primary fermentation the wine was sulphured and transferred to a large cask for ageing on the heavy yeast less fo 12-months.
Medium-full bodied textural wine, supported by saline acidity, with a long persistent palate. White stone fruit and white flowers prevail, with a hint of vibrant citrus.
So much easy going, relaxed attitude in the glass, verdicchio shines. Scents of apple blossom, Meyer lemon and green apple with a lime zestiness. Acidity is keen, a driving force, bringing freshness and elevating the wine's summery fruits. Pure, clean fruit enjoys a starring role, as it should, finishing with gentle texture to close - 93 points."

Oh to be on a beach on the eastern coast of Italy in the Marche region, sipping on a glass of verdicchio (in between swims) with a plate of fried fish for lunch. Well, we can deliver on the verdicchio. This Italian-inspired white is made by one of our leading viticulturists turned winemaker, Mark Walpole from Beechworth.
An engaging nose of lemon pith, cardamom, honey and subtle herbs. The palate is textured and mouth-filling, tailing off with pleasing bitter phen-olics. This is a delicious and complex verdicchio. It's a touch higher in alcohol than expected yet it's well-balanced - 91 points."

A surprisingly rich and structured dry white from this grape variety. Zesty grapefruit acidity lifts the finish. The restrained persimmon fruit character on the full-bodied palate is slightly dominated by the 14% alcohol. Drink now. Screw cap - 91 points."
