Verdelho, 'Margaret River'
Verdelho, 'Margaret River', Ashbrook Estate
After collecting cuttings during pruning season from one of the oldest Vineyards in the Swan Valley north east of Perth in 1976 the “Old Block” was planted on Ashbrook Estate. Due to its popularity a second block was planted in 1987 which is affectionately known as the “Verdelho over the creek”. Coupled with the application of composted mulch, for the past 9 years, the vineyards show remarkable health. Famous for its natural acidity, this variety ages beautifully. Cellaring for more than five years rewards with complex spice and honeysuckle and developing nutty and toasty characters. Stainless steel fermented and aged.
