Petit Verdot 2015 Limited Release

Intense colour, fragrant nose, rich flavours & soft tannins

$22.00 CELLAR CLUB
$19.80

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep purple with a burgundy hue. Fragrant notes of ripe plum and bramble are supported by hints of violets and cedar.

Wine Making

The grapes were crushed to stainless steel tanks for 7-8 days on skins before pressing and completing primary fermentation in French and American oak puncheons (500l). Extended maturation has given time for the tannins to soften and fully integrate before bottling.

Cellaring

The 2015 vintage was typical of Rutherglens’ long and dry autumns. The extended ripening period provided ideal conditions for the grapes to develop intense colour, depth of fruit and flavour. Enjoyable now with char grilled meats, or cellar for 3 to 5 years and serve as a mature wine with braised beef cheeks.

Technical

The Grapes: Petit Verdot harvested from Rutherglen vineyards.
Date Tasted: March 2017
T.A (g/l): 6.4g/l
pH: 3.56pH

Deep purple with a burgundy hue. Fragrant notes of ripe plum and bramble are supported by hints of violets and cedar.

Palate:

The wine is medium bodied with dark brooding fruit of blackcurrant and cassis. Extended maturation in a mix of French and American puncheons provides further complex notes of char and dried herb. The finely textured palate is underpinned by integrated tannins and a rich line and length.
