The wine world’s long-time reliance on fortified styles like Madeira saw that island’s white grape Verdelho long ago exported to, among other places, Australia. Now changing times have led producers in Australia, America, Portugal and Spain to discover Verdelho’s serious and quite different advantages as a dry food wine. Experts are still untangling the interrelations of name and genetics between Verdelho and the Spanish grape Godello (aka Gouveio, Verdello), but if they are not clonal or close relatives they share a similar spectrum of charms: perfumed with a versatile palate anywhere from lean, fresh citrus to broad, oily stone/tropical fruit - always with a very stylish mineral streak.
Currently we're sold out of Verdelho but you could check Grüner Veltliner for a nice alternative. Happy hunting!
