Petit Verdot

'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 2019 Petit Verdot is a full-bodied red wine that is very dark purple in colour and has flavours and aromas to match. Inviting, delicate notes of violet, rose petals and ripe plum dominate the nose. The palate is opulent, complex and complements the nose with notes of cigar box, vanilla, blackberry and stewed blueberries. Oak elements are artfully woven through and provide dark edges on the palate with a welcome note of dark chocolate. The tannins are silky, while the bright acidity lengthens out the finish, which lingers until your next sip. The low crop levels in 2019 made for a fantastic vintage for this special and rare wine. While fairly approachable now, this wine will definitely reward those who can set aside the bottle for eight to ten years of aging.
