Description

GranMonte Verdelho 2019

GranMonte Verdelho opens with aromas of pink guava, banana lollies and white flowers. The dry and full-bodied palate has a luscious texture and refreshing acidity. Ripe papaya and guava fruit flavours with a dash of white pepper. Closes in a long lingering finish.

Fun Fact: Unique in Thailand and only found at GranMonte, Verdelho is Portuguese-originated and rare in other parts of the world. 

100% Verdelho. GranMonte is the first grower and only producer of Verdelho in Thailand. The variety showed great potential after the first planting in 2005, which have since expended into two commercial blocks of Verdelho. The fruit for this wine comes from 12-year-old vines that grow in GranMonte's 15 hectare estate vineyard. GranMonte vineyard is in Asoke valley, Thailand, 350 metres above sea level. The vineyard operates with a precision farming system called ‘Smart Vineyard’, which incorporates a microclimate monitoring system. The system greatly assists their ‘tropical’ vineyard management to achieve the best possibly quality and higher yield of grapes in this unconventional viticulture climate.

Careful hand harvesting at optimum ripeness in cool February for juicy flavours and a natural acidity. Vinification in stainless steel to preserve the aromatics.
