Winemaker's Notes

This gorgeous Verdelho, our only white wine, has a lovely fragrant nose, creamy texture and long persistent fruit flavors. Named for the days when Sarah was made to play the violin right-handed so she didn't poke her neighbor in the eye with her bow!

Critical Acclaim

"The Lefty Series begins with the one white wine in the portfolio, the 2008 The Violinist Verdelho. Medium straw-colored, the fragrant nose offers up notes of baking spices, pit fruits, melon, and floral aromas. On the palate it has a creamy texture, ripe flavors, and excellent balance. Drink it over the next 12-18 months. "
