As an innovator of Petit Verdot, Bill has drawn upon Australia’s largest single planting of this European variety after pioneering Kingston’s planting in the 1990’s. Bill pioneering legacy was instrumental in the Riverland earning its repute as the signature growing region of Australian Petit Verdot.
Sourced exclusively from our own vineyards, this wine is the natural expression of the soil and micro-climate in which it is grown. The Kingston Estate range represents accessible luxury, that special delight to be enjoyed any night of the week. Single varietal wines, hand-selected by our winemakers to display true varietal flavour.
Alan's tasting notes: "Petit Verdot is notoriously difficult to ripen but the sunshine soaked Riverland area of Australia brings out its best! Spice - dark berry fruits - sweet oak - dark chocolate and coffee are what notes you get with this - also well balanced and decent depth! Try it if you’re looking for something different to your usual reds."
Deep crimson in colour with a purple hue.
Aromas of dark ripe berries with pepper spice and a hint of fruitcake and sweet vanilla oak.
On the pallet flavours of ripe plum and mulberry fruit, dashes of leather and vanilla oak lead to a lingering fruit and spice finish.
