Winemaker's Notes

For this premium Petit Verdot we hand selected fruit from four different vineyards, soil types, locations and clones. The minuscule yields of concentrated fruit offered from these vines in 2015 provided us the quality and power to release our second Icon Petit Verdot under our Ironstone series.

We barrel fermented 40% of the juice in new French oak barriques, with 25% matured in 2 and 3 year old French barriques, plus older oak for the other 35%, maturation was 28 months. This powerful intense wine displays a bouquet of blackberry, violets, Spanish olive, Dutch liquorice and spicy cedary oak, with hints of lavender and musk. The palate delivers blueberry, star of anise, Kalamata olive, black cherry and bramble, all enveloped by firm- controlled tannins and savoury oak.

This big brooding wine will require serious aerating to consume with food in its youth or will reward long term cellaring under the right conditions.
