Winemaker Notes
A Bordeaux variety with the translation “small green” which is referring to the berries during ripening; the berries when ready to harvest do remain small but have a deeply coloured purple, thick skin. The grape variety Petit Verdot performs very well in the local climate as we have a warm, dry end to Autumn and being a later ripening vine it is possible to get full, optimum ripness in the grapes. It produces wines similar to Cabernet Sauvignon but with more floral aromatics and a soft finish with firm tannin.

Dining Suggestions
Quail or grilled zucchini.

95 POINTS – ”Vibrant purple colour, a real glass-stainer. Purple berries galore, over toasty and spicy oak. Juicy and seriously delicious on first sip, mulberries and blackberries, with tannins ripe and acidity in check. Screaming for a lovely steak. Fruit is pristine.” – The Real Review December 2019
