ANTHONIJ RUPERT PETIT VERDOT 2017

Enveloping aromas of leather, cigar box, tobacco leaf and spice with ripe fruity notes of plum and black berries. The overall impression is one of refinement and elegance – albeit on a powerful but suave palate. Those same dark fruit compote notes are found in the mouth, with spicy cinnamon and nutmeg vibrance alongside. Beautifully textured, with a plush, softness and approachability which belies the nuanced impression of a darker, more potent leashed muscularity lurking below. It’s almost impossible to discern where fruit ends and oak begins so superbly meshed and harmonious are these components. There is nothing harsh, hard or astringent on this version of a grape cultivar known for it. Attractively dry and generous with a lingering spicy farewell.
