Gartelmann Rylstone Petit Verdot
This is not a wine for the faint-hearted, redolent of warm Mudgee summers with the smokiness of a distant bushfire. Dusty blackcurrant characters immediately assail the nose with sweet cedar and sandalwood notes following. If you can inhale just round the edges you’ll also see a spiciness... is it eucalyptus or paprika, lanolin, white pepper or maybe even jasmine?? That’s what we call a complex nose! And then there’s the palate ... smooth and rich, with fine, well-integrated tannins. With all of the above add in some blackberry and Satsuma plums in a cigar box.
