Montegray Petit Verdot 2015

The Wine:

This wine boasts with brooding, dark berry, pencil shavings and black pepper aromas on the nose. It is deep centred with a full ripe mid palate of berry compote. Earthy and solid – not clumsy. The surprisingly soft, integrated tannin structure lingers on the tongue, with a whiff of cinnamon floating away.

This is a wine made from grapes grown in Stellenbosch. It was matured in second fill French Oak barrels for eight months before bottling. Although never seen as a stand-alone variety and only regarded as a blending component, it was decided to bottle it as such as its inky purple hue is quite remarkable and both its tannins and acidity are moderate.

Montegray Vineyards:

The story of Montegray Vineyards began with the purchase of a small, very special Syrah vineyard in the Banhoek Valley. Rose Jordaan from Bartinney then began looking for other small batch, interesting varietals and special vineyards in the Winelands showcasing the regions diverse nature.
