Verdelho (ver-DEL-you)

The most planted white on the Portuguese island of Madeira where the grape probably originated. The name is used on the label to indicate a medium-dry, nutty style of Madeira which falls between the styles Sercial and Bual. Verdelho is also grown in Australia. Not the same as Italian verdello.
