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, herbal aromatics and a soft finish with firm tannin.

“Plenty of flavour. Ample tannin. Pretty vanilla and violet notes. Rushes and gushes curranty fruit. This puts ticks squarely and confidently in a good many boxes, including the value box”
