About The Wine

For lovers of rich red wines with soul, and those who look for those small batch gems, this wine from Dylan Arvidson is going to knock your socks off.

After two months on skins, the full dark fruited spectrum of flavours available in Petit Verdot have come to the fore. Dylan makes this with a gentle hand, nursing a single barrel through to bottle. Minimal inputs resulting in maximum impact.

Margaret River produces some of the country's finest wines from Bordeaux varieties and this ranks among the best local examples of Petit Verdot you will find.

With 93 points from Gary Walsh and only 33 dozen made, this little gem won't be around for long.

Critic Reviews

Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

"Packs a bit of tannin and lively acidity, in with cherry and chocolate, peat and dark spices. Rich and thick (like so many people), though not particularly heavy, having a certain vigorous dash and derring-do, not least for a Petit Verdot. Dried herbs and earth on the finish, with a whiff of floral perfume as it goes. Like this a lot. Plenty of crunch and interest."
