Gartelmann Georg Petit Verdot 2016
I really like the Gartelmann label. The iconic Australian magpie sits proudly. There was a stage there where there were a few changes and tweaks but I hope this label is what they've stuck with.
Mudgee Petit Verdot here. A big and brutish wine weighing in at 15.2% alc. From a vineyard 630 metres above, it saw time in new and used French and American oak.
Bold scents of Christmas cake, prunes, dried sultanas greet you from the outset. It smells porty too. Baked blueberries make an appearance the longer it sits in the glass. To taste its rich and porty. Dark chocolate, earthy and leathery characters wash through but it feels warm with a spicy finish. I'd be hard pressed finishing a glass but some folk who love big wines would gravitate to this.
