Petit Verdot 2017

Petit Verdot 2017

'Tis a rare thing to see this grape on its own, but when it happens, it can be a thing of beauty. Petit Verdot is a late ripening red Bordeaux grape variety that has traditionally contributed structure, body and gorgeous notes of violets to red blends. The abundant heat and sun of our Osoyoos East Bench vineyards create the perfect growing environment for this grape variety, and make this varietal bottling possible.

The 2017 Petit Verdot is a medium to full-bodied red wine that is dark ruby in colour. Inviting notes of rose, blueberry and chocolate dominate the nose. The palate compliments the nose with flavours of dark chocolate, raisins and cigar box. This wine is an elegant and big tannin driven wine, with well-balanced acidity. While fairly approachable now, this wine will reward those who can set the bottles aside for at least eight to ten years of aging.
