BACKGROUND

Prue's Verjus is a crisp and zesty, freshly-pressed grape juice made from a premium selection of unfermented green Eden Valley grapes. Semillon, muscat blanc and graciano have been selected to enhance the aromatic quality and food-friendly flavour of the verjus. This wonderful grapey condiment can be used for a half verjus, half sparkling water non-alcoholic spritzer, or in salad dressings and for cooking. Verjus can also be used to deglaze the pan after cooking light meats such as chicken, and for poaching. Splash fresh fruit with verjus in place of lemon juice to prevent discolouring. With bottle ageing, the colour and flavours intensify, just like a wine.

After opening, refrigerate and consume within 2 months.

VINTAGE

The lead up to the 2024 season in the Eden Valley was characterised by significant rainfall in June, followed by a dry spring. Variable fruit set and frost impacted the yield potential, however rain at the beginning of December assisted canopy and berry development and good soil moisture levels supported vine growth well into January. The mild summer weather eventually warmed up and dried out, with some short bursts of heat, leading into a warm, dry autumn, which delivered optimal maturity and ripeness in the fruit. Our focus on canopy health in the vineyard was vital and this attention to detail resulted in pure and intense primary fruit characters in our whites, with stunning acidity and freshness.
