Verdelho

With hints of ripe pear, this dry style wine displays tangy citrus flavors and a crisp, mineral finish.

Taste

The Verdelho grape is a native of Portugal, and used to make Madeira. With hints of ripe pear, this dry style wine displays honeysuckle, pineapple and tangy citrus flavors that lead to a crisp mineral finish.

Food Pairings

This wine is a great alternative to Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and very food-friendly. Enjoy it with seafood and chicken, pork or veal. Terrific with Asian food (Thai, Chinese and sushi), as well as flavorful salads, like Greek, Caesar or Garden.

Viticulture Notes

The Clarksburg appellation is known for its unique microclimate. As the Sacramento Valley heats up during the day, it pulls in the cool maritime breeze from the bay, which allows warm summer days and cool evenings. This climate is ideal for growing many white varietals that are wonderfully aromatic with a crisp, fresh acidity. We take special care in all aspects of our grape growing from deficit irrigation, to precise pruning techniques, to handpicking at harvest.

Winemaking Notes

Grapes were hand picked in the morning and whole cluster pressed. Juice was cold settled and fermented cold in stainless steel tanks. The wine was allowed to sit on light lees for several months before racking. The wine was then finished for bottling, never seeing any oak or malo-lactic.
