Originating from France, Petit Verdot is a late ripening variety that suits Australia’s dry, sunny climate perfectly. Although it has long been used as a blending component, it is increasingly being given the chance show its true colours as a varietal wine.
Matured for 12 months to add tannins, structure and spice, this wine has concentrated cassis, black fruit and classic cigar box notes. The concentrated fruit sweetness is perfectly balanced with hallmark acidity and tannins which ensure long term ageing. This is a fantastic example of how great Hunter Cabernet can be.
