Description

This special release Sweet fortified Verdelho has been hand crafted in honour of Ivy Gwenda Dossett, Lurleen's mother, a mentor and friend to Terry Morris. Through her vocation as a wine and spirit manager, she often shared samples from wine representative’s which led to Terry's lifelong interest in wine, ultimately leading to the founding of Sirromet. Please toast your forbears when sampling our ode to Ivy.

REGION: Granite Belt, Queensland.

COLOUR: Soft amber gold.

NOSE: Baked pear, ripe apricots and touches of sweet pineapple and honey.

PALATE: A delicate palate of honeyed stone-fruits with tropical overtones, a little citrus acidity to balance the sweetness, toffee apple and sweet spices delivering a silky mouth feel and fresh finish.

WINEMAKING COMMENTS: Verdelho was late harvested to encourage extra ripeness and complexity of both fresh and dried stone-fruit and tropical fruit flavours. The grapes were crushed and minimal fermentation permitted before fortification to the lower alcohol range of a fortified style, ensuring that the spirit does not overpower the fruit. The wine was matured in stainless steel with some exposure to oxygen to allow development of honeyed and toffee-apple notes, then bottled early to preserve freshness.

It is recommended that this wine is consumed within a day of opening, to enjoy at its best.

FOOD MATCHING: Citrus infused crème caramel with compote of blood orange.

CELLARING: Best drunk now while fresh and young, however can be cellared for a year or two in appropriate wine storage conditions.
