Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot is a late-ripening, small, blue grape with a firm skin and low yield that is one of the best grapes in the world.
Originally, this grape was grown in Bordeaux and used as a blend, but due to the too cool climate, the grape only reaches full maturity there once every 3 to 4 years.
In warmer countries, such as Spain, Australia, California and South Africa, the grape thrives better and is given the opportunity to fully ripen.

What does the Petit Verdot taste like?

Petit Verdot produces powerful wines with notes of ripe, black fruit (blueberries, black cherries, blue plums), smoke, spices, cedar and molassses. Furthermore, the wines have firm tannins and a long finish. Excellent combination with game, tournedos, lamb, steak, seasoned pork and hard cheeses.
