Gartelmann Wines [Mudgee NSW], Petit Verdot 2015
Sourced from high country [Rylestone NSW] single vineyard, this Petit Verdot, a traditional tannic component of Bordeaux blends, delivers a hefty punch.
The typically steely tannins have been somewhat tamed by winemaker Liz Jackson, to allow the plummy, violet fragrant fruit to jump out of the glass.
The eye-watering volatile acidity & astringency allow the chest-thumping 15.2% Alc content to release a rustic, fruit-driven savoury palate.
Cellaring will round off the angular edges of this power-house wine.
