Monument Vineyard 2011 Verdelho

The three Jones brothers, and their wives, took over the Monument Vineyard at Cudal, 30 kilometres outside Orange, three years ago - and the fruit is vinified by the talented Chris Derrez. I particularly enjoyed this wine, and was pleasantly surprised by its freshness. It’s a vibrant wine with a fresh fruit salad nose, leading on to a crisp palate with pineapple and guava notes. There is a nice, brisk acid finish. A wine for enjoying well chilled, perhaps with a chicken salad, or sweet and sour pork. $16.
