LITTLE DEMON VERDELHO 2019
Appearance: Pale straw with green hues.
Nose: Aromas of vibrant tropical fruits, pear, citrus zest and a hint of spice.
Palate: The array of citrus notes flow on to the palate, with added tropical melon characters filling the mouth with flavour. Made as an unwooded dry style, the result is both refreshing and persistent, with almost crunchy natural acidity.
About the wine: In 1871 Scottish scientist James Clerk Maxwell (Mark Maxwell’s Great Grandfather) proposed a thought experiment, that involved a hypothetical creature acting as a gatekeeper between two compartments to sort gas molecules according to their speed. At first glance, such a system could potentially create energy from nothing… theoretically impossible given the laws of physics. This hypothetical gatekeeper became known to physicists as Maxwell’s Little Demon, and has stirred debate in the science community for more than a century.
