Tasting Notes
"The price on this struck me as being a little ambitious until I dug a little deeper, uncovering its exclusive nature. Coming from just under a half acre of plantings, this Petit Verdot grown in stemwinder soils is the epitome of a limited release: only three small barrels were made, which translates to just 70 cases of unfiltered, handcrafted deliciousness. There’s an elegance here, with violets and dusty cocoa on the nose, then truffles, stewed raspberries, cherries, and currants on the palate. Although the tannins are well-placed, the wine’s structure is that of a bottle maybe a couple years older, a little more ready to drink. Perhaps it’s the limestone-rich soils, but there’s a liveliness of structure here, crushed rocks and brilliant acidity rising to the surface." - Kurtis Kolt, The Georgia Straight
Ratings
91 points- Wine Align, National Wine Awards of Canada 2019 89 points- Anthony Gismondi "Wines like this remind us of the seemingly unlimited potential to make wine in BC, and particularly in the Similkameen Valley. From a half acre of vines grown over stony ancient Stemwinder soils, winemaker Charlie Corcelettes produced only three barrels of petit verdot (some 70 cases). Floral, bright and inviting, this super vibrant New World style Petit Verdot offers fully ripe fruit and very lively acidity knitting the finish into a long, linear event. Impressive. I would age this three to five years to see the final result..."
