Silken Thread 2010 Petit Verdot
Worth waiting for
A native of Bordeaux, Petit Verdot has found a spiritual home on the pale red gravel hills around Mudgee.
Cool nights and warm days ensure the slow-growing dark berries have all the time they need to concentrate their juice, and ripen their powerful flavours.
Inky black colour, with aromatic notes of violets and vanilla bean, you'll soon discover blueberries and forest fruits lingering with a soft, silky mouth feel. This wine's been a long time in the making. But that's the very essence of its charm. Savour it with friends, over time.
Total Production: 98 Cases
"Fantastic nose on this wine, but sharper on the palate. It's a wine for food. If tasted alone, its raw edges show. Take it to the table where those raw edges take on meat (any) and juices and become a different character. 93 Points and well worth its money". Key Review of Wine, Sep 2012.
"Big tannic wine - good example of style with light, minty red fruit". Winestate Magazine May-Jun 2012.
