Forlorn Hope 2014 Verdelho QS
2014 Forlorn Hope Verdelho "Que Saudade", California
NVWE Notes: This Portuguese grape has clearly found a home in our state. The nose of this forthcoming beauty is a creamy-rich melange of baked apple, white peach, chestnut honey, orange blossom, white rose, pie crust, brioche and almond scents. It proves deftly balanced and as flavorful as hoped on the palate, where notes of Meyer lemon, pineapple core and lime zest bring a bright piquancy to all the richness. It holds its balance and focus through a long, satisfying finish and it is ready to enjoy. 637 cases made.
