2016 Verdelho


The Verdelho grape first made its name as one of the four varietals of Maderia wine in homeland Portugal. Traditionally a rich fortified wine, it has now made a name for itself here in Australia as being a light, fruity easy drinking style that can be enjoyed on it’s own or accompanying by food.

Tasting Notes

Refreshing aromatic notes of citrus lime, mango and tropical fruits lead to a luscious tropical passionfruit and guava on the palate. Balanced with a vibrant line of citrus fruit- providing generous mouth feel and a soft crisp finish.


This year McLeish Estate crushed the first Verdelho on the 14th of January. Despite the Hunter Valley experiencing some early rain. The optimal conditions prevailed with long warmer days, this year the conditions throughout the white harvest continued to be a mixture of extreme 40 degree days and afternoon storms.
