David Traeger has been making what many regard as Australia's best Verdelho for many, many vintages. Once again the wine has an engaging tropical fruit nose with the cool climate fruit delivering a richness on the palate of pineapple peach with a hint of vanilla. A versatile wine ideal with spicy foods.
Maranoa is one of the oldest properties in Nagambie, originally a farming homestead planted to vines in the 1870s, it yields an amazing quality of Verdelho. David Traeger is one of the world's foremost protagonists in Verdelho, he is one of the nation's most successful and enduring viticulturalists, his name is synonymous with vintages of the most excellent Verdelho. Maranao is fashioned from the finest parcels, a wine of mouthfilling intensity and exquisite length, it ages surprisingly well, to become a toasty, complex and engaging table white.
Straw greenish hues. Guava and stone fruit aromas, a touch of ripe melon, varietal rose petal and lychee notes. Brimming with wonderful mouthfilling flavours, the crispness of cool climate fruit and ripe richness of the tropics, pineapples, pinenuts and peach, a hint of greenery and vanilla over an excellent fine acid structure, before a lingering, stylishly dry finish.
