Matching Recipe

Prue's Dolmades
Verjus is a wonderful grapey condiment that can be used on salads, either straight from the bottle or in a low-kilojoule vinaigrette using walnut, olive or a neutral oil combination with honey or sugar, and sherry or balsamic vinegar. For deglazing, splash into the pan after sautéing light meats such as chicken or veal to make a light sauce. For more ideas please refer to website.

In the Bottle

Vintage 2013
Grape Variety Blend of grenache, riesling and gewürztraminer
Technical Details The grapes are handpicked at veraison (onset of colouring in grapes) to reduce the cropload in our vineyards. This is a perfect time to make verjus because it is at the start of flavour development in the grape when the acids are still high and the sugars are around 10%. Whole-bunch pressing is the next process, the juice is then cold settled and sterile filtered into the bottle. Produced from a blend of varieties, including riesling, chardonnay and muscat blanc.
