Here is another terrific offering of our favorite Portuguese white variety. During the relatively cool summer of 2011, the Dragone Vineyard north of Murphys provided what may be one our greatest Verdelhos ever, with very good balance of fruit characters and crisp acidity

Wine Profile
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 pears, lemons, and jasmine. And, it is bursting with crisp, fresh fruit flavors of melon, papaya 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.

This is a terrific white wine. It's got all the tropical fruit flavors you mentioned, plus a lovely honeyed finish. A very nice effort from the Twisted Folks!!
