Chapel Hill Verdelho 2012

Verdelho has enjoyed mixed fortunes in Australia, with a history here dating back to the early 19th century. However, in more recent times its popularity has surged, with crush figures of around 14,000 tonnes in 2010.

Tasted alongside the 2011, this version shows melon (canteloupe and honeydew) with some pineapple cube lollies thrown in. It's a variety generally renowned for its fruit-salad-esque aromatics.

Initially lively and assertive on the palate, sharp nigh-prickly acid adding a bit of interest. Pretty inoffensive.  87 - Average

Tasted on: Friday 11th January, a Fruit Day
Source: Sample
Price: $16
