Petit Verdot 2018

Petit Verdot 2018

'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.

Our 2018 Petit Verdot is a medium to full-bodied red wine that is dark ruby in colour. Inviting notes of rose petal, fresh blueberries and blackberries dominate the nose. The palate is complex, but mimics the nose with delicate flavours of plum, violet and lavender, while a hint of toasted coconut rounds out the finish. This is an elegant and tannin driven wine, with well-balanced acidity. While fairly approachable now, this wine will definitely reward those who can set the bottles aside for at least eight to ten years of aging.
