Liqueur Verdelho

What is verdelho and is verdelho sweet?

Verdelho is a Portuguese white grape variety that is most famous for its use in some of the long-lived fortified wines from the island of Madeira off the Portuguese coast.  However, in the Swan Valley, the verdelho grape is a versatile white grape used in sweet liqueur styles or dry styles. How can you tell if verdelho is sweet or dry? The sweet wines will have a colour of gold to dark tawny brown, whereas the dry styles will be in larger bottles and clear to straw colour.

Is verdelho dry or sweet?

Verdelho can be a dry or sweet dessert wine depending on the environment and climate. The Swan Valley is known for its dry verdelho and is sweet luscious dessert liqueur verdelho.

This essential liqueur Verdelho is a great example of what the Swan Valley's climate can achieve with Verdelho grapes.  The nose shows some bottle development with a little rancio character from its time in seasoned oak barriques in the underground cellar.  The palate delivers a fulsomely rich and complex sweet wine with luscious lashing of intense flavour and a clean dry finish. The organic brandy spirit is also clean with finesse and coolness. Easy current drinking, ideally suited for desserts and after dinner nightcaps

This delicious liqueur dessert wine comes in 375mL bottles.

Winemaker's Notes: Can be served chilled in summer as a pre-dinner wine or at room temperature as a sweet dessert wine. I assure you, you will enjoy it immensely.
