Corcelettes Petit Verdot Micro Lot Series 2016

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWines like this remind us of the seemingly unlimited potential to make wine in BC, particularly in the Similkameen Valley. From a half acre of vines grown over stony ancient Stemwinder soils, winemaker Charlie Baessler's Petit Verdot Micro Lot SeriesPetit Verdot Micro Lot Series produced only three barrels of petit verdot (some 70 cases). Floral, bright and inviting, this super vibrant New World-style petit verdot offers fully ripe fruit and lively acidity, knitting the finish into a long, linear event. Impressive. I would age this three to five years to see the final result. The price is a bit much, but that's up to the market to decide.Tasted: 18 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
