2010 Mollydooker The Violinist Verdelho, Wine of Australia, $25 (S) – Rating 90

Verdelho is a white grape originally from Portugal that produces a crisp wine.  A satisfying nose of ripe pineapple. Crisp on the palate with a semi-round mouth-feel followed by well balanced flavors of pineapple, citrus, tropical and minerality with enough zippy acid to make it a good food pairing wine. It paired very well with our meal of boiled shrimp with 3 sauces.
