PIRRAMIMMA PETIT VERDOT 2013
For this premium Petit Verdot we hand selected fruit from four distinct soil types and locations. We barrel fermented 50% of the juice in new French Oak, with the other 50% matured in 3 and 4 year old French Barriques. Oak Maturation was 28 months. his powerful intense wine displays a bouquet of violets, olives, blue damson plums and spicy cedary oak, with hints of lavender and rosemary. The palate delivers blueberry, star of anise, kalamata olive, black cherry and bramble, all enveloped by firm controlled tannins and lemony oak. This big brooding wine will require serious aeration to consume with food in its youth or will reward long term cellaring under the right conditions.
