"Verjus is a complex, pressed juice from unfermented grapes. This wonderful grapey condiment can be used as a replacement for citrus in drinks or vinegar in cooking." - Prue Henschke
Clear with a pale-green hue. Spicy aromas with fragrant grape blossom, citrus rind and stone fruit. The palate is fresh and juicy with spicy grape flavours, tangy apple and stone fruit, crisp acidity and a zesty finish.
Serving Suggestion Prue's Verjus Spritzer
Vintage 2020 arrived at the end of two years of significant drought, with windy conditions and massive heatwaves in November and December causing poor fruit set during flowering and then culminating in one of the worst bushfires that the nearby Adelaide Hills has seen. This resulted in a challenging vintage with some of our lowest yields ever. Cooler temperatures from mid-January and 30mm rain at the end of the month lead into more autumnal conditions perfect for veraison and fruit ripening and an early onset of vintage. The hand-picked fruit that arrived at the winery in the cool of the morning was clean, with good concentration of flavours.
