I am happy to receive pictures of you enjoying the wine, these can be emailed. I will also happily link to any reviews you have written on my Top Drop wine.

Sherwood Estate

Verdelho 2005

 Take some time out for a lazy lunch to enjoy this delicious local Verdelho. Beautifully aromatic and showing typical Verdelho notes of passionfruit and tropical fruits flavours it’s a vibrant, crisp, clean wine. Showing a lovely medium straw colour, fresh fruit flavours and a dry flinty finish all emphasising the savoury aspects on the palate. The fruit is grown on Sherwood Estate’s own Macleay Valley property.

This is a flavoursome, everyday drinking wine which goes very well with food.
