Ashbrook Estate Verdelho is bright and crisp with tropical fruit notes which are intense and refreshing. A perfect match for lighter dishes such as salads and chicken and a great example of Margaret River Verdelho.
Ashbrook is arguably Australia’s premium producer of Verdelho in the unwooded, crisp, fruit-driven style.
Pale green/ straw colour. Ashbrook displays varietal bouquets of orange and passionfruit. The palate mirrors the aromatics, the naturally assertive acidity of Verdelho complements the elegant flavours and gives the wine a refreshing finish. An excellent depth and fullness of fruit, Ashbrook is sure to develop attractive honeyed characters. But who can wait? Serve chilled as the perfect accompaniment to fresh seafood and spicy dishes.
A fastidious maker of consistently excellent estate-grown table wines which shuns publicity and the wine show system alike and is less well known than it deserves to be, selling much of its wine through the cellar door and by an understandably very loyal mailing list clientele. All of the white wines are of the highest quality, year in, year out. James Halliday
