2021 Yokel Verdelho
Verdelho is a classic variety from the Swan Valley, lost in the wave of alternate varieties planted over the years.This fruit is from the traditional Lamonts vineyard planting, upper Swan, 80 years of age & dry grown. Hand harvest, then destemmed into open for slight skin contact, basket pressed straight to tank for a chill ferment. Battonaged on heavy lees for 3 months, full malo then racked & a touch of sulphur at bottling.
