Kingston Estate Petit Verdot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Inky purple. Cherry and candied plum aromas show a somewhat brooding medicinal element. Sweet, pungent and fleshy but restrained, with good depth and power to its ripe flavors of plum, bitter cherry, smoke and spices. Finishes with serious, gripping tannins and lingering sweetness." IWC 10/11 "Petit verdot was abandoned by many Bordeaux producers because it was difficult to ripen properly. It flourishes in the warm Australian regions, and keeps colour and flavour even with high crop levels. This wine has good purple hue, although not especially deep. It is well-made, and allows its strong structure reasonably free expression, but without smothering the blackcurrant and poached plum fruit. A great barbecue wine, and ready now." Australian Wine Companion 11/11
