Visitors to winery cellar doors in South Australia often run into this attractive white variety, where it has an enthusiastic following for the weight and zip it brings, especially in McLaren Vale, and there's even a little in the Hawke's Bay too. Otherwise, it's main claim to fame is as one of the four famous grapes of Madeira, performing as the off-dry style after dry Sercial but with less weight and sweetness than Bual. It is a high-yielding, early ripening variety that seems to have been present on the mainland of Portugal for hundreds of years before its long–standing association with the fortified wines from the island of Madeira. Verdelho should not be confused with the Italian grape Verdello or the Spanish white grape Verdejo grown the Rueda DO in particular.
