Bill Downie Petit Verdot
ORGANIC / BIODYNAMIC / VEGAN
Bill Downie is a top Aussie winemeaker whose Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsular Pinot Noirs are normally sold on allocation for mega bucks. He was offered the opportunity to use fruit from a biodynamic vineyard in Riverland, South Ausatralia and was so impressed with the quality of the Petit Verdot grapes that he jumped right in. Deep colour with ripe and intense dark berry fruit on the nose. Fairly full bodied with ripe, fleshy fruit on the palate is nicely supported by rustic tannins. Unoaked so the fruit does the talking.
'Lovely bright crimson. Definitely bordelais on the nose. Fresh and fruity par excellence. You wouldn’t want to keep this but it offers lots of clean, fresh fruit and is clearly more wholesome than some of the mass-market Riverland Petit Verdot to have come my way in the past. Absolutely aimed at wine-bar drinking.' Jancis Robinson, Wine of the Week 16/20
