Petit Verdot is not a grape you see that often in Spain, so I was quite excited to get to try this wine. It has been aged in 70% French oak and 30% American oak for 12 months with a further 5 year minimum maturing in the bottle.
A medium intensity ruby red colour with a nose of fresh red berries, some vegetable tones and spice. On drinking this wine has a zing to it. One of the group likened it to sherbet. I felt like someone had aded a minute amount of chilli. The tasting notes talk of white pepper. It has medium tannins and acidity, so I still got the sour taste I always get with tannins, but the fresh red berries came through, though not sweet more like slightly unripe berries. A good medium finish.
I’d say this wine is a good wine with some unusual flavours, but it’s not really my style. However if you go for peppery then this wine might suit you.
