Evocative richly textured wine. The nose has a pleasant aroma of ripe yellow stone fruits intermingled with layers of brown spice and hints of musk. The palate opens with a burst of bright apple-like flavour, nectarine notes and almond, wrapped around a densely layered, biscuity structure. Ideally served at the end of the meal or as a pleasant break, it is traditionally a dessert wine.
Wine expert Karen MacNeil has stated that the Verduzzo is one of the "lightest-bodied, most exquisite dessert wines made anywhere".
According to wine writers Joe Bastianich and David Lynch, Verduzzo has the potential to produce honeyed sweet wines with a citrus note similar to "an orange jelly candy" as well as somewhat tannic dry whites with "chalky" notes.
RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS: Very enjoyable throughout the day as aperitif. Pairs wonderfully with aged cheese and pastries. Being a sweeter style of wine it can be paired wonderfully with spicy Asian dishes.
