Mollydooker The Violinist Verdelho 2010
The Violinist is named for the days when Sarah was made to play the violin right-handed in school, so that she didn't poke her right-handed neighbours in the eye with her bow.
Pairs with all seafood, chicken, veal, cheese and dried fruits.
A blend of 1/3 Adelaide Hills fruit and 2/3 McLaren Vale, the 2010 The Violinist Verdelho gives intense aromas of lemon juice, white pepper, coriander seed and a touch of grapefruit peel. Crisp, rich and very full in the mouth (15.5% declared alcohol), this Verdelho provides a great intensity of spiced citrus flavors with some poached pears and apple slices coming through in the long finish. Delicious now, it should remain fresh and vibrant to 2013.
