From a young age, winemaker Jerome Scarborough knew he’d be involved in the next generation of the Scarborough wine business – pushing forward with an Offshoot from the first foundations. One of those new inspirations is the Offshoot range, featuring a Scarborough Offshoot Verdelho, Pinot Noir Rosé and Vermentino. These wines spring from Jerome’s experimentations with exciting varieties – fresh growth off the original plant, promising thrilling flavours while staying true to the original Scarborough story.
The curious creatures on the Offshoot label represent the flora and fauna that work in the vineyards and around the winery to ensure the ecosystem remains healthy.
The 2017 Scarborough Offshoot Verdelho is green, pale straw in colour with aromas of musk sticks, tropical fruit salad and green apple notes with lifted floral elements. On the palate, we find tropical fruit upfront with a crisp, refreshing green apple mid palate and zesty grapefruit finish.
Scarborough Offshoot Verdelho is available at Scarborough Wine Co, 179 Gillards Road, Pokolbin. Just 10 minutes from The Vintry or online at Scarborough Wine
