Winemaking and Tasting Notes

Our new range 'Gradient' is a limited production of wine from small parcels of vineyard in the eastern foothills of Khao Yai National Park. The land is set on a steep slope with loam-clay soil and schist at 600 meters above sea level, resulting in a cooler climate and another terrain suitable for grape-growing in tropical Thailand. The vineyard looks down into a lush valley of gentle rolling hills. The gradient of colours of the Khao Yai mountain ranges in the horizon provide the inspiration for this exceptional wine.


Unique in Thailand and grown solely by the GranMonte viticulture team, Verdelho is Portuguese-
originated and rare in other parts of the world. The grapes were hand-picked in the cool February nights at 24°Brix for juicy flavours and natural acidity, and later vinified in stainless steel to preserve the aromatics. 2021 Gradient Verdelho is flinty on the nose with tropical characters of ripe mango,
passionfruit and cut grass. This wine is aromatic yet full-bodied, dry with a long lingering finish.

From a very limited production, 2021 Gradient Verdelho is a true collector’s item.
