 'Private Bin' Petit Verdot 2015

Price (750ml bottle): $45.00

Dry and oaked · 14.2% alc/vol · Bottled September 2016 · small batch of 1380 bottles

Our ‘Private Bin’ label is used only in years where an exceptional season results in a variety produced in minute quantities to enjoy ourselves.  However, occasionally we are prepared to share them with you.  Superior quality fruit is patiently fermented and matured in 100% new oak over extended months and the wine exemplifies only the finest characters which are a true reflection of the individual variety.  A very, very limited number are bottled and individually numbered labels mean each bottle has its own personality.  Not every variety or vintage is bottled under this label, so you can be sure that when it is, you have found something very special indeed.

Still considered an exotic grape variety in the West due to its scarce appearances as a varietal, this unusual grape variety can make extraordinary wine.  At Tassell Park it has long been valued for its contribution to our premium wine range - the 2004 vintage of this classic Bordeaux black grape variety launched our 'Private Bin' label.  This complex example from vintage 2015 has subtlety and power.  The aroma has hints of licorice, leather and violets underpinned by smoke and spice from quality French oak.  The palate is silky in texture with velvety tannins balanced by a firm acid structure typical of Petit Verdot.  The wine has a myriad of flavours including black pastilles, olives and coffee.  A subtle lick of oak carries the wine through to a long lingering after taste. This is one single variety we will only bottle in an exceptional season that truly sets itself and us apart from the rest.  Youthful and vibrant now, it will cellar for seven plus years.
