Product Description

Like it's big brother the 'Petit a' is crafted in small batches utilising traditional techniques including open vat ferments with wild or spontaneous yeasts, hand plunging and seasoning in used French oak barriques for 2 years prior to bottling with no fining or filtration and additional resting in the cellar for one year minimum until release. A Cabernet Merlot blend (60% Cab, 35% Merlot) with a dash each of Cab Franc and Petit Verdot, just like in Bordeaux. Deep ruby in colour, it's like a sitting room from the 1950's.....tea leaves (Lapsang Souchong), cigar box spice with mulberry and blackcurrants. The palate is generous and beguiling with intermingling flavours of cassis, dark berries, Asiatic spice and a hint of bay leaf. This is wrapped in fine but structured velvety tannins and the natural acidity of Tasmania. Undoubtedly one of the best New World expressions of a red Bordeaux blend outside of France!
