Captain Barossa AK Ebenezer Barossa Valley Petit Verdot

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2009 Vintage) says

Captain Barossa is up to all kinds of tricks, and no one expected petit verdot to shine as one of his more clever stunts. Petit verdot doesn’t stand alone particularly comfortably – but this doesn’t taste a lot like petit verdot, and that’s the point. Instead, it’s a luscious and rich Barossa red, in the style for which Captain Barossa is famous when he slips out of his Stig garb. It’s delicious and plush, capturing red berry compote, fragrant violet, mixed spice, mint and dark chocolate flavours.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep colour; once again, demonstrates the willingness, if not the desire, of petit verdot to grow and crop well wherever it is planted. Very attractive blackberry and spiced plum fruit, with soft tannins.
