Petit Verdot 2019 Limited Release

$22.00 CELLAR CLUB

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Dense, deep red. Fragrant notes of blackfruit and berries are supported by hints of chocolate and charred oak.

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 2019 vintage was typical of the year’s long and dry autumn. 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.
