Royal Engineers Petit Verdot, 2019
Shipped and sold by Seaside Pearl Winery
Petit Verdot is bold. Aged for 18 months in an American Oak, this wine reflects its beautiful heritage with supple tannins and complex flavours. This wine offers up aromas of black fruit flavors of plum, blackberry, blueberry, black cherry with dried lavender and sage. French oak, softens this wine and add flavors of vanilla, nutmeg cloves and cinnamon. The finish lingers with savory dried herbs. Like the Royal engineers jacket, our Petit Verdot is bold. While approachable and delectable now, the wine will continue to improve in the bottle for more than a decade.
Released with great excitement, Royal Engineers Reserve Petit Verdot was named after the Royal Engineers, the tiny military force that served during the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush. With their splendid scarlet jackets, the 220 men of the Royal Engineers, commonly known as “Sappers” laid the foundation for much of British Columbia by building roads, producing maps, surveying land and settling miner’s disputes. In 1864, Royal Engineer Alben Hawkins arrived to survey the area now called Mount Lehman and took up residence on the bluff above the southern bank of the Fraser River.
