Each grape variety adds its own distinct dimension to this interesting blend. Verdelho lends a lively, fresh acidity, while Roussanne fills out the body of the wine with a rich, fleshy voluptuousness and the Chenin Blanc contributes a vibrant tropical fruit character reminiscent of Queen pineapple, pear and yellow citrus. The wine has a textured mouthfeel with a hint of toasted nuts and cream on the long finish.

Crisp and fresh, this versatile blend is imminently drinkable in its youth, but has ample complexity and depth of flavor to age beautifully for up to ten years from vintage. Enjoy it chilled with full-flavored seafood, duck or veal dishes.
