“Mandrake? You listening? Purity of Essence. That’s what this Verdelho has. You’ll never catch a Commie drinking this Verdelho. Why, Mandrake? Because it’s full of exotic tropical aromas of vanilla and fresh berries. And, it is bursting with crisp, fresh fruit flavors of tropical fruit, white pepper, and grapefruit. Mandrake, this is the purest expression of fruit from a vineyard as you will ever taste. Drink it now, like a man!”!

Food Pairing Notes
Chinese Chicken Salad, seared Ahi Tuna
Or how about Grilled Prawns:
make marinade of Verdelho, garlic, salt, finely chopped honeydew melon,
and a small amount of jalapeno, just enough for a little spice.
Allow this marinade to stand overnight in the fridge.
Marinate prawns in their broken shells 2 hrs
and grill over Mesquite. Peel and eat.
