Forlorn Hope Que Saudade Verdelho 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

From Vista Luna in Lodi and Dewitt in Amador All barrel fermented Waxy on the nose with big green tea aromas that are joined by faintly herbal, quince, and smoky almond tones. Overall this is a bit earthy and low but quite aromatic with hints of candied citrus peel. Light and then fruity on entry, this comes off as very clean, a bit pithy on the palate and creamy with a long finish. Matthew mentioned that it keeps gaining richness in the bottle, to get a fresher wine he is dialing back the brix at harvest and no longer stirs the lees, in fact pulls it off the lees at dryness. 87pts
