August 26, 2011

One of the most popular wines at my neighbourhood barbecues is the 2009 Limited Edition Australian Petit Verdot. Everyone likes it because of its balance of blackberry and black current fruitiness and spice. It’s smooth tannins match perfectly with a good ribeye or t-bone steak. Because of its popularity and my dwindling supply- I’ve been hesitant to bring out too many bottles lately.

Of course one of the reasons Limited Edition wines are so popular is that they are… Limited. Unfortunately that’s the one drawback- you can really enjoy a Limited Edition wine and may never see it again (better buy two!). Once in a while though Winexpert is able to secure a long term source of raw materials for a previous Limited Edition wine.

And they’ve done it again! Winexpert is releasing an Australian Petit Verdot in its new Selection International crushed grapeskin line (experience enhance body, fuller mouth-feel, softer tannins and richer colour). At the end of August I will be able to replenish my cellar with Australian Petit Verdot.

My neighbours will be so happy.
