2015 Petit Verdot


The opportunity to grab some Petit Verdot this year was too good to pass up. It's a fascinating variety, very densely coloured, it's aroma is quite unique, dark red and blue fruits and floral elements combine with subtle herbs. The palate is also quite unique, soft acid, strong chalky tannin and lots of body.
I've made Petit Verdot for many years, as a part of the quintet blend, and I will use a little of this wine in a Bordeaux blend as well. However, I've always wanted to release some on its own, so here it is.

"Somewhat unusual varietal from the Yarra Valley, as a variety PV is rather expressive and this example is no exception. Pretty, floral top notes, blueberries - sitting over an underlying smokey platform. Blue fruit presents itself with aplomb, a little lavender and wild herb. It's fresh - a good line of acidity does that - well structured, with chalky tannin drawing across the palate. Just presents beautifully, a rounded mouthfeel. All class."  thevinsomniac.com

"Deep, intense crimson-purple; luxuriant flavours and structure, but with near-hidden notes of black olive and charred meat. It is a variety I would have an each way bet on if I were planting a vineyard tomorrow." 94 James Halliday
