A small parcel of Verdelho, planted originally in the 19th century and never officially recognized. The wine has a beautiful botrytis character, marked by pure acidity, by lemon and honey and great final freshness. Screwcap.
An increasingly impressive Verdelho with each new vintage, this is the producer’s best yet. It has warm, ripe apricot and pear flavors that are intense and generous. The soft, rich texture is cut by nervy acidity that gives the wine fine balance. Age for one year.
The lively perfume of Verdelho shines through this crisp, fresh wine. There’s a great texture of pear skins, followed with spice over the green fruit, finished with wafts of citrus and lime.
Vert de l’Or is a play on words for Verdelho, grown in Anjou since 1810. It is a richly textured wine, ripe with apple, but with a spicy, steely character. Black currants linger in the background of this dry, fragrant wine. Screwcap.
Here’s a welcome addition to the New Wave of bone-dry, high-acid, floral-fruity wines, made from more obscure varieties that has been sweeping across California. It’s a very fine wine, firm and crisp and lemony, with just a slight kiss of oak. Terrifically versatile, and a sommelier’s dream.
Stevenot has tinkered with Verdelho for years, and the work is paying off. This is a wonderful wine that fills a much needed niche in California whites. It’s dry and crisp in the way of Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, but incredibly rich in flavors of honeysuckle flowers, peaches, pineapples and vanilla cream, with a steely minerality that makes the finish bracing…
Solista, meaning made from one grape rather than a blend, is a new range of wines from Adega Mayor. This fresh, fruity Verdelho is perfumed, with lemon and orange-peel flavors. It’s all ready to drink.
Just beautiful. Provides the crisp dryness and minerality that so many California white wines lack. But it’s not shy in fruit, offering savory waves of pineapples, Meyer lemons and pears. Wonderful by itself, and versatile at the table.
