2015 Bill Downie Petit Verdot
An amazing dark garnet in the glass and bursting with dense, dark fruit and spice on the nose, this 100% Petit Verdot is bright, juicy and fresh, and made for drinking!
Not often seen by itself, Petit Verdot is generally found in Bordeaux, where it is most commonly used to impart colour and herbaceousness in a blend.
Here, the Petit Verdot was biodynamically farmed on the Murray River in Australia, and was made into a standalone wine by Bill Downie as a seperate project for the year.
We don't usually pay much attention to reviews, but you can read what good things Jancis Robinson had to say about this wine here.
