Wanted: Australian Verdelhos

The Wine & Viticulture Journal is seeking Australian Verdelhos for its forthcoming tasting of the wines, the results of which will be published in its September/October issue.

The tasting has been inspired by the regional report on Queensland’s Granite Belt to be published in the same issue, where Verdelho has recently proven to be especially suited.

It has been exactly four years since the Journal held its last tasting of Verdelho. Back then, the tasting panel noted that the various styles of Verdelho available suggested the Australian wine industry was still trying to define the benchmark for the variety.

Producers interested in submitting their wines to the Wine & Viticulture Journal’s Verdelho tasting are asked to email editor Sonya Logan ( [email protected] ) in the first instance with the tasting due to be conducted in early August.
