Pirramimma White Label Petit Verdot 2017
- McLaren Vale
- Petit Verdot
- Red Wine
The exceptional 2017 vintage provided us outstanding fruit quality, great colour, varietal character, ripe tannins and length of flavour. For this our twenty second Petit Verdot release we selected fruit from the Siberia, Eric’s, OTC, Jones and Katunga vineyards, each block providing its own distinctive profile. The wine has a lifted bouquet of black cherry, violets, pink plum and musk, enhanced by hints of cedary oak. With the concentrated palate exhibiting spicy blackberry, boysenberry, red currant and tangy Morello cherry, complemented by hints of Kalamata olive. The fine grain textured tannins, subtle oak and savoury varietal flavours are beautifully integrated in a long-sustained finish.
Over 2 years in new and old French & American oak.
