When tasting the 2009 Alta Mesa Lodi Verdelho in San Francisco last year, Andrea Immer Robinson (a Master of Wine and author of multiple wine books) could not stop talking about the “silky dryness and perky tartness” of this uniquely scented (think lime, lemon verbena and white peach skin), dry and bracing white wine. Robinson also noted flavors of marzipan and almonds in the finish while exhaling and added that it makes one crave a Barcelona style spinach salad, laden with pine nuts and raisins.

Wow — who wouldn’t want some of that? But what is Verdelho, and why are we talking about it?
