2011 Verdelho Santa Barbara County

Sold Out

Tasting Notes:

The moment you open a bottle of our 2011 Verdelho, you will be greeted with aromas of sweet pineapple and apricot and rich tropical fruit flavors. A seven-month aging process in neutral oak barrels evokes a creamy texture in body and weight and soft honey notes on the mid-palate. But fear not! This white wine stays true to its Spanish style as a slightly tart, crisp wine that carries a mildly mineral finish.

Verdelho is a natural with prosciutto & melon and seafood such as butter-poached lobster tail, crab cakes, and sushi.

Varietal Characteristics:

Verdehlo is generally a dry, crisp white wine with tangy flavors of mango and citrus. It can be great on it's own, especially on a hot day, or accompanied with a light meal.

Vineyard Source:

We sourced our 2011 Verdelho from the Estelle Vineyard in the Happy Canyon AVA, a warm climate area of the Santa Ynez Valley. This vineyard site is optimal for the Italian grape allowing full flavor development.
