Australian Petit Verdot – February 2010 Limited Release

The abundant sunshine hours and heat allow growers to ripen varieties that have all but been abandoned by growing regions less blessed. Petit Verdot is one such variety.

With smooth, gripping tannins and an elegant structure leading to a magnificent boldly oaked finish, this is a wine for long term ageing and special occasions.The Food: Excellent when paired with steak, prime rib, lamb, intense cheeses, and game.
