Deep-hued with ruby highlights. Fine oakiness suffused with ash on the nose backed by stone fruits, spice and woodland. Richness is wrapped around the still-abundant tannic aromatics on the palate. A great wine with an assertive structure and burgeoning fruit.

Reviews
93 points (5 Stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix  Petit Verdot as a varietal in Australia is traditionally unheard of. In Bordeaux it sits perfectly in their traditional mix. This 100% Petit Verdot from the unfashionable Clare Valley puts it’s hand up and says look at me! Deep inky red in the glass, the nose has attractive blackcurrant and violet hues. The palate is the biggest surprise with earthy licorice, red plum with some oak maturation evident. And to top it off the lingering finish has some soft tannins.
92 points – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Offering beautifully ripe fruit aromas of blackcurrant and cranberry with nuances of vanillin oak and cake spice, the wine shows succulent fruit intensity and fleshy mouthfeel backed by silky texture and polished tannins. It’s flavoursome and comforting with a lengthy velvety finish. At its best: now to 2025.
91 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  Complex aromas of red fruits with floral notes, ripe blackcurrants and subtle vanilla oak make up the nose. It’s colour is dense inky red nearly black, clear and bright whilst the palate is also intense.  Starting with active clean tannins, spice at the front, with red fruits, subtle oak all combining in layers of flavour and texture. The acid is firm and adds to the overall balance. Give this wine 5+ years in the cellar for its best.
90 points (4 Stars) – Nick Butler, The Real Review  Bright and deep ruby-red colour. Earthy aromatics, cured meats and red licorice, violets vying for position. It's a measured and delicate interpretation - sinewed, with a long acid line. Suggest decanting. Drink 2019 – 2025.
