David Traeger – Maranoa 2012 75cl Bottle from TheDrinkShop
Coulour: vibrant green.
Nose: it displays lemon, lime and stone fruit aromas with a touch of ripe apricot, and has also been described as having rose petal and lychee notes.
Palate: this wine has wonderful mouth-filling flavours, an excellent refreshing structure, crispness and a lingering, stylish dry finish.
A tantalizing dry white, showing all the hallmark characters of the Verdelho variety, the excellent mouthfeel and length. Verdelho as a variety ripens early and shows fantastic tropical fruit characters, as well as peach, lemongrass and guava aromas, flowing through to palates of mouthfilling intensity and long length.
The variety, while extremely attractive when young, also ages well, to become a toasty complex and enjoyable aged white.
Excellent with tapas, with first courses, oysters, even with spicy Asian food.
