Angove's 'Stonegate' Petit Verdot'

Expert Reviews

Peter Forrestal (2005 Vintage) says
Petit verdot is a classic, late-ripening variety that is more widely planted in the irrigated areas along the Murray than in its native Bordeaux. Here, it makes delicious robust reds with powerful, mouth-coating tannins. Remarkably, they are nowhere near as popular as they deserve to be. This is; bold, full-throttled, with deeply concentrated blackberry pastille flavour and substantial, though balanced, tannins: a well-priced quaffer.

This is another surprise packet from Angove's, which shows how good petit verdot can be in hotter climates: it's powerful, even robust, with dark berry fruit and firm, grippy tannins. Needs a big steak.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Youthful purple-red; ripe black fruits; plenty of structure, but does dip on the mid-palate; at the price, who's complaining?

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Vivid red-purple; highly aromatic but paradoxically slightly reduced; bright, black fruits; low tannins.

More cherry and currant petit verdot flavours, with a tight, grippy finish. Good value.
