WHO IS THE VIOLINIST?
The Violinist is Sarah, a lefty who was made to play the violin with her right hand at school so she didn’t poke her neighbour in the eye with her bow.
Known for its fragrant tropical fruit nose and generous palate, the 2021 Violinist Verdelho is no exception to its past. Aromas of pineapple and lychee combine with vanilla to create a creamy mouthfeel that is reminiscent of the French Oak it is aged in. Toasty coconut and hints of honeysuckle linger on the palate creating a long and seamless finish.
The grapes were grown on the Gemtree vineyard in McLaren Vale. One third is Barrel fermented and matured in 67% new American oak and 33% new French oak. The remaining two thirds is tank fermented and matured. The required Marquis Fruit Weight™ for the Lefty Series is 65% – 75%. The Actual Fruit Weight for 2020 The Violinist is 66%.
