2018 Faber Verdelho

This might be the country's most age-worthy Verdelho! A bargain for the price.



About The Wine

This is possibly the most interesting Verdelho in the country.

A funny variety perhaps for a winery to specialise in, but John Griffiths and his Faber vineyard has really made it their own. The unique combination of soils and climate in the Swan Valley that John's vineyard occupies produces Verdelho that ages remarkably well.

They say this might be their best vintage to date of this cult-favourite white wine.

Very much a hidden bargain of the West. If you can keep your hands off it, watch it blossom over the next 5-10 years.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Tropical fruity scents, faint almond, floral lift – a very pretty and attractive start. The palate is tropical fruit orientated, lightly sweet but lifted on tangy acidity, and the flavours are drawn long and true through the palate. Loaded with flavour, detailed too, and texture is a drawcard, slippery and yet lightly chalky at once. Super stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

The best white in the Swan Valley using fruit from Faber Vineyard. Made from cold fermented free run juice. Released as a young wine but boy will it age well. This could be our best Verdelho ever! It’s running out the door already. Made from all our fruit plus some from the Sittella vineyard, we managed to pick around the rain and got the fruit ripened to perfection. It has intense nectarine and pawpaw aromas, is vibrant, bright and full flavoured on the palate, with honey dew and ripe nectarine flavours and a long clean fresh finish. Simply stunning.
