Petit Verdot 2016

Clovely Estate

Petit Verdot ripens late in the season, and while it struggles to reach maturity in the cool conditions of its origin in Bordeaux, it thrives in the warmer climate of the South Burnett. Our Petit Verdot vines are capable of producing dense, full bodied wines that are as satisfying as they are elegant, and that will compete with the best in the world.

TASTING NOTES: Intense dark plum in colour with aromas of violets and dark berries intertwined with a chalky/earthy complexity. The wine is bold yet floral notes carry the palate. Very well balanced, firm yet silky tannins prevail on the palate with a touch of spice and minerality on the finish.


SUGGESTED FOODS: Pairs with venison and slow-braised beef dishes.
