Sorry This bottle is currently not available.

2015 Now finished: PETIT VERDOT, Bill Downie. Murray River, Australia


Bin: 2637
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Grape Variety: 100% Petit Verdot, fermented with natural yeasts in tank - bottled without use of wood, fining or filtration - as simply done as is possible
Producer: From the website of Bill's UK agent (Liberty Wines) -
Bill Downie is famous for his striking William Downie Pinot Noirs from Gippsland, (where he lives), the Yarra (where he makes the wines) and Mornington Peninsula. These wines are produced in tiny quantities, so Bill spends most of his time telling people his wines are sold out. When he came across this biodynamic Petit Verdot vineyard in South Australia, he saw an opportunity to make a wine an accessibly priced wine that would be available in greater volume. But because the vineyard has been organically managed for the past 15 years, and was recently certified as biodynamic, he also saw a site that fitted in with the philosophy of grape growing he pursues on his own vineyard in Gippsland.
Old Bridge Rating: Bright and lively, but with earthy complexity. Amazingly drinkable example of a very difficult grape
