Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Jackpot Petit Verdot has a gorgeous dark, almost opaque blue/purple tint. The nose is vibrant and showcases classic and complex aromas of black currant, black cherry, Iodine, graphite, pencil shavings, violets and lavender. These flavours explode onto the palate where they are amplified and joined by spoonfuls of rich, blackberry jam, cedar and tobacco. The density and concentration of these flavours is something that must be experienced to be believed. Texturally, the 2014 Jackpot Petit Verdot has tremendous volume in the mouth, with supremely rich, fine-grained tannins which gives the wine incredible structure, power, depth and length.

Vineyard Notes
The Petit Verdot grapes were sourced from the Blind Creek Vineyard. This is a legendary vineyard from which a number of outstanding wines have been made. This is a warm sight that allows for long maturation times of the fruit, well into later October, and sometimes early November each year. The fruit from this vineyard is always dark, concentrated, and powerfully structured, but the tannins are so fine that the wines are soft and silky in the mouth.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked at optimum maturity and destemmed gently into small fermenters. Hand plunging took place 1-4 times a day during the on-skin fermentation. Fermentation temperatures were fairly warm and ranged from 28 to 30 degrees celcius. The wine was pressed near sugar dryness and transferred to French oak, 25% of which was new – for 16 months. A further six months of aging took place in stainless steel barrels for better integration.
