The 2019 Swan District vintage in WA was excellent. A return to average rainfall levels and a bright sunny Spring period in the preceding year has resulted in a high quality average yielding crop. Mild summer conditions prevailed throughout the harvest period enabling steady flavour accumulation and ripeness.
Verdelho is unjustly an underappreciated variety and is synonymous with the Swan District which is one of Australia’s oldest wine regions. Moondah Brook has a long history of making amongst the best of them within Australia. This wine is produced from gnarly old vines between 25 and 50 years old grown on friable, red, loamy sands. Verdelho is typically vibrant and tropical without being overly perfumed. It is textural and hence a great food wine. It drinks well as a young wine and will age well with tropical notes turning to citrus, toast and honey while retaining texture and acid.
The iconic Moondah Brook Verdelho exemplifies Western Australian Verdelho, with clean, fresh tropical fruit characters of guava, pineapple, passionfruit and lime citrus with lifted floral notes. Brilliant pale straw with
youthful green tinge. The fresh and flavoursome palate has an abundance of tropical fruit flavours; This wine is juicy with a subtle a lemon pithy textural element adding to the complexity.
