The wine spends 20 weeks on skins in an “Egg” fermenter then aged in second use French oak for a further 10 months. Once again you will be rewarded if you let this one breath.
Straight Petite Verdot is a personal favourite is generally hard to find and this is the first time I have had this style outside of Bordeaux.
Petite Verdot is big and juicy and usually blended with Cab Sav. Petite Verdot has a deep red colour and perfumed aromas and these traits bring a lot to a blend. By itself it is great a big bold wine with deep colour and perfumed aromas. Think cherry, good acidity and smooth tannin.
