Rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast
This pale-gold Verdelho encapsulates much of the fruity, textural charm of this historic variety in Western Australia. The tangy lime, pear and mealy-apple aromas mingle with some reductive salty seashell notes. A rounder honeysuckle character is there too. A refreshing lift of crunchy acidity in the mouth neatly juxtaposes the distinctive texture and concentrated orchard-fruit flavors. Drink now or hold another few years for a more honeyed version.

Region: Margaret River

In south west Australia, the most important wine region by far is surely that of Margaret River, a humid and warm region which produces up to twenty percent of Australia's total wines. Margaret River has been an important wine producing region for some time now, and currently there are around fifty thousand hectares under vine, with around one hundred and fifty wineries using the land there for growing grapes of remarkable quality and flavor. The region is renowned for its versatility, and both red and white grapes thrive well in Margaret River. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes which Australia has become famous for flourish particularly well in the fine climate of Margaret River, alongside excellent white varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Sémillon.

Country: Australia

Whilst most of Australia consists of arid deserts and dense bushland, the oceanic coasts to the south of the country have a terrain and climate ideal for vine cultivation and wine production. It took several decades of failed attempts at the end of the 18th century in order to produce vines of a decent enough quality for making wine, but since those first false starts, the Australian wine industry has continued to grow and grow. Today, wine production makes up for a considerable part of the Australian economy, with exports in recent years reaching unprecedented levels and even overtaking France for the first time ever. Whilst the greatest successes in regards to quality have been the result of the Syrah grape varietal (known locally as Shiraz), Australia utilizes several Old World grapes, and has had fantastic results from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling, Chardonnay and more. As the Australian passion for locally produced wine continues to develop, wineries have begun experimenting with a wider range of grape varietals, meaning that nowadays it isn't uncommon to find high quality Australian wines made from Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Viognier, amongst many others.
