This wine is made from Petit Verdot grapes from the Murray River Region of Nothern Victoria. Petit Verdot is a late ripening grape and is usually blended with other Bordeaux varieties.
This wine is deep purple with a crimson red hue. Rich dark fruit, black berries and cherries, hints of violets with chocolate and mocha characters from the French oak.
Well integrated oak combined with fine tannins adds richness to ensure a lingering palate full of flavour.
Aged for 26 months in new and used French barrels, providing further complexity and fine tannins with cedar and vanilla on the nose.
A fine balanced wine with a lingering finish suited to rich gamy flavours of duck, kangaroo and smoked meats.
This wine will continue to improve over the next 5 to 10 years.
