2019 Jessence Blanc
This Verdelho is a pale yet vibrant white gold in color with fluorescent lime green hues. The wine displays upfront aromas of guava carrying a light fringing and cleansing acidity. Crisp tropical fruit flavors with rich honeysuckle aromatics, balancing structure from the Verdelho's smooth roundness. Silky dryness and white peach make for a uniquely scented wine.
Verdelho grapes from Silvaspoons vineyard were some of the earliest grapes of the season. A beautiful lime green color.
Looking up to the great Portuguese producers, making a perfect Verdelho is no easy task. It wants to act like a wild bull. But to tame it, you have to be soft and gentle.
Food Pairing Notes
Fresh shucked oysters and green salad with bright vinaigrette or tapas with all the works.
