Benguela Vinography Petit Verdot 2017
This power of this wine lies in its elegance and delicate notes that define a sophisticated red wine. It delivers on a montage of intense red and dark fruit, hemmed with a gentle perfume of lavender, roses and hints of Turkish delight. To balance the fruit, oven baked capsicum, graphite notes and a slight peppery note adds a savoury gloss.

Cellar Harvested at optimal ripeness, the grapes were cooled overnight followed by bunch- and berry sorting the next morning. After three days of cold maceration, the juice was allowed to warm up to 16 ĚŠ C. To enhance the intrinsic qualities of Petit Verdot, a combination of techniques like whole berry
fermentation and fermenting at cooler temperatures were introduced to accentuate aromas and texture. Alcoholic fermentation lasted eight days
with gentle pump overs to aid delicate flavour and colour extraction.
Pressed off the skins before fermentation was completed, the wine was settled in tank and transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation.
