This single release Petit Verdot smells like one can only imagine Dame Helen Mirren smells; gentle waves of pretty violet and potpourri. Petit Verdot is one of the five red varieties of Bordeaux. The grapes for this seductive siren were plucked from a few precious rows at Rymill’s 3 Mile Lane vineyard. It’s gorgeous, bright, juicy, seductive, and all class.
Foot-crushed shiraz, naturally fermented with no additions, basket pressed, bottled by gravity, hand-labelled, cork-sealed and wax-dipped. Lovely perfumed shiraz with snappy purple berries and a dusting of powdery tannin. Delicious and good value.
