THE VARIETY

Verdejo

Verdejo originates from, and is the fifth most planted variety in, Spain. The pride and joy of the Rueda Designation of Origin (in Castilla y Leon), Verdejo is herbaceous and produces full-bodied, aromatic, high-acid wines that become nuttier with age. A great palette cleanser which goes well with fish tacos, carnitas and chicken flavoured with lime.
THE REGION

Margaret River

Western Australia’s most famous wine region was established by Dr. Tom Cullity at Vasse Felix in 1967. Quickly followed by Moss Wood and Cullen. Today, Margaret River has over 150 producers on widely varying soils with the region’s best reds coming off the ironstone gravel. Within the region, areas such as the Wilyabrup Valley—a warm maritime climate—are the beating heart of Cabernet plantings. Though famous for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Shiraz shine here too.
