Tasting Notes
“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!”!

Vineyard Notes
100% Verdelho from Dragone Ranch Vineyard
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.

Ahoy Mateys! Me and me boys are takin' it a bit easy tonight...seas are calm, and some are playin some Liar's dice...so we broke open some more casks of wine from our latest raids, and I'm havin a...what's it say? Bordello? Really? Nah...Ver-deh-lo...ok - I don't think I have had one of these types of wines before, so let's see if it is a good 'un!

This wine is similar to the blonde hair color from one of the lasses I spent some time with last time we made port...

Sniffy Sniff Time - This is one sweet smelling wine, me hearties. I think I'm smelling some apple, banana, honey and vanilla here.

Tasty Taste Time - We have a smooth wine here. Mighty tasty! Apple fruit, with a bit of Pineapple as well, touch of caramel, creamy oak.

I have never had one of these Verdehlo wines before, and this is quite good! Reminds me a bit of a Chardonnay in some respects...which I like too. Good thing I have more in the hold, ya know, as this one is almost gone in a single day.

Bas vers le haut, Mateys...Arrrr!
