About The Wine:

Beautiful aromas of plum, smoky tobacco and subtle oak. The palate is full, rich and smooth with wonderful flavours of dark forest berries. The finish is very smooth with very soft tannin which is a sign of great aging. Basket pressed after extended maturation in small format seasoned French oak barrels.

Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:

All I can say is WOW! This is an awesome aged Petit Verdot. Beautiful up-front full fruit flavours of dark berries and a very smooth finish. I have always loved this variety and I recommend it to everyone who loves a good full-bodied red wine. You won’t be disappointed with this beauty which has great age as well. My score 93/100 – WACC Gold Medal.  

What is Petit Verdot?  

Petit Verdot (“peh-tee vur-doe”) is a full-bodied red wine that originates in southwestern France (in Bordeaux). It is highly desired as a blending grape in red Bordeaux blends because of its plentiful color, tannin and floral aromas of violet. Because Petit Verdot is such a bold wine, it is commonly added in less than 10% of most wine blends. The wine is also rarely produced as a single-varietal wine, however there are several producers making phenomenal Petit Verdot wines in regions within Australia, Chile, Spain, California and Washington State.

Great Petit Verdot wines offer up ethereal aromas of plum, lilac, violet and sage with gravel-like minerality. The characters to look for in varietal wines are its intense colours, the wonderful fragrant nose, rich flavours and soft tannins. they are also much better with a few years of bottle age.

About The Producer and region:

The producer of this Western Australian Back Vintage Petit Verdot 2013 is a very small boutique operation in Gidgegannup in the Perth Hills wine region. Their wines are only available cellar door and in selected restaurants in WA.
