The Taste

This is a textured wine with smooth tannins. The mouth sensation of this wine is full bodied and has good volume. The elegance of the Petit Verdot combines perfectly with the liveliness and freshness of the Carignan – achieving an in mouth sensation of great balance and tenor. The nose of this wine is slightly spicy, offering notes of raspberries, signature of the Carignan.

The Corky Verdict

Amy- Another exceptional wine from Vultur. Rich, black fruit and spice with beautifully integrated oak.

Sam- An extended maceration period, natural fermentation and 14 months in French oak. Another limited release wine with only 1990 bottles produced. I love this wine, elegant, rich and complex. A must try!
